Individuals and entities using data provided on this Brown County Covid-19 Dashboard do so solely at their own risk. The County of Brown and the Brown County Public Health Department receive this data from other sources, modify it before providing it on this Dashboard, and make absolutely no warranties nor assurances that the data provided here is fit for any specific purpose. The data on the dashboard only includes data from Brown County Public Health’s jurisdiction and De Pere Health Department’s jurisdiction and does not include data from the jurisdiction of the Oneida Nation Community Health Services.        

The data for current number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients is from EMResource. We also use data from the Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS).  We ‘scrub’ the data we are provided with before we present it on the Dashboard in an effort to eliminate duplicative data and/or data that involves residents of other counties. We also exclude certain data such as positive case numbers in prisons. Due to occasional delays in testing results and limitations from external data sources, some metrics may experience periodic reporting delays. In those cases, data may be retroactively updated to best reflect the most accurate information available to Brown County Public Health. Numbers reported here may not match the numbers reported by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services due to time of data collection and other factors, included the ‘scrubbing’ mentioned above.
