(Dodge County) A third person in Dodge County has tested positive for COVID-19 as the statewide number of confirmed cases in Wisconsin climbs to 585. That’s according to the latest update from the Department of Health Services. There have also been two more deaths, a 60-year-old Milwaukee man, and the first death in Dane County, a person in their seventies. That brings the total number of people who’ve died to seven. It’s a number that will continue to grow, and public health officials say by how much, and how fast, depends on how closely the rest of us follow Governor Tony Evers “Safer at Home” order. The Milwaukee death was confirmed by the medical examiner’s office after DHS posted its daily update, which lists six total deaths.
