DHS has identified community spread of the virus in Brown, Columbia, Dane, Kenosha, Milwaukee and Waukesha counties, meaning some people who have been infected with the virus are not sure how or where they became infected.

Health officials stressed social distancing — staying 6 feet away from others, avoiding crowds and staying home if sick.
