Forty people in Milwaukee County may have become infected with the coronavirus as a result of participating in Wisconsin elections on April 7.
Milwaukee Health Commissioner Jeanette Kowalik says data is still being analyzed to show the connection between more people that may have contracted COVID-19 due to election activities, like being a poll worker or voting in person, earlier this month. Kowalik hopes the data will be finalized by May 1.
Wisconsin’s April 7 elections consisted of local races and the presidential primary. Approximately 400,000 people voted in person.
