Report: White House COVID-19 Task Force concerned about Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- CBS 58 obtained a White House Coronavirus Task Force report showing extreme concern for the growth of COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin. 

The task force attributes the high number of cases to small gatherings of family and friends. 

"The state averaged 2,500 cases a day; hospitalizations have tripled over the past three weeks and deaths continued to increase last week. Low adherence to mitigation measures has been reported with wide variation between localities," the report says. 

The White House report notes extreme concern for spreading the virus from younger age groups "much of which is asymptomatic." 

The task force recommends continuing the use of masks, physical distancing, and avoiding crowds both in public and in private gatherings.
