The hardest hit area is Milwaukee, with 290 confirmed cases and three deaths in the county.

There are still no confirmed cases in Oneida or Vilas County, though testing has been limited. The Oneida County Health Department confirms 53 tests, with 34 negative results, and 19 tests still pending.

The number of tests that have come back negative across the state has now topped 10,000.
