Dunn County is making some changes to how COVID-19 data is reported in social media posts. The new posts provide more detail. In a press release today Dunn County Public Health Director KT Gallagher explained the changes:

The Dunn County Health Department is sharing more
local COVID-19 data related to positive cases such as, their age, gender, and recovery status. This data
can be found on our Dunn County Portal and our social media accounts. The portal data is updated
pulling from Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) data at approximately 2:00pm daily.
The social media updates are completed manually on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at
approximately 2:00pm. The Wisconsin DHS updates their information every day at 2:00pm with the
data cut off at 9:00pm the previous day.

The press release, which is attached below, provides further detail on how this data is obtained and how you can find that data yourself in between the social media updates.
