La Crosse also added 58 more cases and is now averaging 66.9 a day the past week. Last week, that average was 70, which includes one day (Dec. 31) with 131 cases. It still is hard to get a grasp on the averages, however, with the holiday data still incorporated.

For Vernon, it’s the 37th — the seventh in the past three weeks. For Fillmore, it’s the third death, all of which have occurred in the past 13 days.
Here’s a look at new cases, the average the past week, total and active cases, as well as current hospitalizations in surrounding counties from over the weekend:
Statewide, Wisconsin reported Monday 1,456 cases, 56 more were hospitalized and five more died from the virus. The state’s numbers are typically lower on Sunday and Monday, before a bit of a jump on Tuesdays.
Minnesota added 980 cases, 52 hospitalizations and four deaths. The state hadn’t been under 1,000 cases in a day since early October. Nov. 2 is the last time there were single-digit deaths in a day. Minnesota’s numbers don’t typically fall off after the weekend, like Wisconsin.
In Iowa, 1,094 cases, 62 hospitalizations and one death. The state continues to go every other day with higher, then lower death counts, swinging that average listed below day to day. Last week’s seven-day average is 35. Tomorrow, it will move to 27 a day because the state continues to report deaths the way it does.
