Nine new cases of COVID-19 confirmed today in La Crosse County.

This is the last daily update by the county, which announced today it will move to weekly counts.

The state could still provide the number of new cases daily in La Crosse County, except those numbers don’t add up.

Right now, the county is saying the total cases for La Crosse is at 957. The state data shows 951, which wouldn’t add up even if it wasn’t updated with today’s 9 new cases.

Six county residents are currently hospitalized in La Crosse. There are 120 active cases.

The health department also provided some more information to what will replace the COVID-19 compass that was taken off its website over a week ago. Read more about that here.
