City of Milwaukee Order Phase 6 Update

MILWAUKEE – The City of Milwaukee reached an important milestone this week in its gating metrics. The burden rate of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people decreased to 26.8, placing us in the “moderate transmission” category. This is down from 51.2 last week and is the lowest observed case burden value since March 2020. The percent test positivity has also decreased to 2.2%, down from 3.4% last week, and remains in the “low transmission” category.

“Reaching a burden rate that we haven’t seen since the beginning of the pandemic is a major accomplishment and one that our community should be incredibly proud of,” said Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson. “With the lifted restrictions, we must be diligent about continuing with safety procedures when appropriate, such as wearing a mask if you are unvaccinated, washing our hands regularly, and getting tested if you feel unwell so we can continue this forward momentum.”

Vaccinations continue to be the primary focus for the Milwaukee Health Department as the most effective tool in keeping Milwaukeeans safe from the COVID-19 virus. 42.9% of Milwaukee adults are now fully vaccinated, with 49.7% having received their first dose. There is an ample supply of vaccination for anyone who hasn’t received it at numerous locations across the city, including three incentive opportunities this weekend.

On Saturday, June 5, Mexican Fiesta will be hosting their VivaMKE Marketplace at Flores Hall, 2997 S. 20th Street, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone who receives their vaccine as well as any vaccinated individual who shows their vaccination card will receive a free ticket to Mexican Fiesta 2021.

Summerfest is hosting a drive-thru vaccination clinic on Saturday, June 5 and Sunday, June 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. outside the South Gates of the festival grounds. Anyone who get vaccinated at this clinic will receive a free ticket to Summerfest 2021.

Black Husky Brewing is hosting round two of their “Double Your Dose” vaccination clinic from 12 – 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, June 5 and 6. The brewery will provide a free beer to anyone who receives a vaccine or any vaccinated person who brings an unvaccinated loved one to get their shot, with free soda offered for people under 21. In addition to the vaccination clinic, live entertainment and food trucks will be on-site throughout the weekend.

Beginning Monday, June 7, the Health Department will be sunsetting the vaccination clinics at Mitchell Park and Zablocki Libraries. The vaccination clinic at Washington Park Library will remain open Wednesdays and Fridays from 12 to 4 p.m.

A full list of this week’s upcoming mobile vaccination clinics is attached and can also be found at Milwaukee.gov/COVIDvax.

Any individual who needs a vaccine and does not have transportation to one of these vaccination clinics can schedule an appointment for an in-home vaccine by calling the hotline at 414-286-6800. Additionally, Uber and Lyft are offering free and discounted rides to and from your vaccination through July 4. Learn more about how to schedule the free ride on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website.
