(Dodge County) One of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services newer metrics in the battle against COVID is the Disease Activity level by county. As of Monday, none of the state’s 72 counties was in the very high category, but more than 50 were at moderate risk. That includes Dodge, Fond du Lac, Washington, Jefferson, Columbia, and Green Lake County. Health officials say the metric has a role in determining the restrictions and precautions long-term care facilities use for their residents and visitors. Meanwhile, 37.8-percent of all Dodge County residents have completed the vaccine series. Forty-point-one (40.1%) have had at least one dose. Columbia County has over half of their population completely vaccinated.
