5 of 6 Badger Bounce Back criteria met
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has reported on its COVID-19 dashboard that five of the six goals for Gov. Tony Evers’ Badger Bounce Back plan in the state have been met.
These criteria are a downward trajectory of COVID-like syndromic cases within a 14-day period, a downward trajectory of positive tests as a percent of total tests within a 14-day period, 95% of hospitals affirming that they can treat all patients without crisis standards of care, 95% of all hospitals affirming that they have arranged for testing for all symptomatic clinical staff treating patients at the hospital per CDC guidelines, and a downward trend of COVID-19 cases among health care workers calculated weekly.
The sixth goal not yet met is a downward trajectory of influenza-like illnesses reported within a 14-day period.
