For the first time, 2,000 Wisconsinites are now hospitalized with the virus.
Over the last week, the state has reported an average of more than 5,600 new cases each day. That’s behind only Illinois and Texas.
The state is also fourth in new cases per capita.
More than 2,300 people have died in Wisconsin during the pandemic.
