I'm not changing my event-attending habits yet (hey, I did my job in distancing and vaxxing). But I'm definitely going to the mask more when I'm inside and/or crowded in, at least for now. And I do wonder if the latest COVID breakout keeps some Wisconsinites away from the large attractions that late July and August typically has in our state.
Although @Summerfest isn't until September, live outdoor music is still happening at the newly renovated American Family Insurance Amphitheater (@AmFamAmp) this week! @foofighters will perform this Friday. https://t.co/B0QOCkp8jr— CBS 58 News (@CBS58) July 26, 2021

Wisconsin also seeing COVID spike, especially in the new Title Town
Both Monday and Tuesday have seen nearly 1,000 new COVID cases be reported in Wisconsin, barely 3 weeks after the 7-day averages were down below 80 new cases. That's a very bad breakout, and indicates the virus is seeing exponential growth which needs to be tamped down now. Wednesday usually sees an important data release from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services which goes over how many new cases are being reported in each county of the state, and the trend of growth or decline. As you'd imagine, cases have gone up by a lot in the last 14 days, and it's hitting many corners of the state.
