US Rep. Moore isolating after testing positive for virus

Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore says she has tested positive for COVID-19 and is in isolation. The 69-year-old Milwaukee Democrat said she is “following guidance from my doctor and am isolating from others.” Moore said she did not expect the virus to affect her work. The statement did not say when she learned she had contracted the virus or where she might have gotten it. Moore announced nearly two years ago that she had been diagnosed with cancer. When the pandemic began, Moore noted she has a compromised immune system.

The COVID Tracking Project reports that the rolling average number of daily cases in Wisconsin over the past two weeks has decreased by 45.3%. The state ranks 34th in the country for new cases per capita. One in every 379 people in Wisconsin tested positive in the past week.

Wisconsin reported its lowest number of daily coronavirus cases in months Saturday after testing dropped over the Christmas holiday.

However, health officials also reported the slowest day of testing since the spring, with a total of 5,893 tests processed.

State Supreme Court rejects COVID-19 restrictions challenge

The Wisconsin Supreme Court turned away a challenge of Dane County’s ban of indoor gatherings in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
In a 4-3 vote Tuesday, the high court rejected the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty’s request that it bypass lower courts and take up its case.

The county has since relaxed restrictions on all private gatherings indoors, including sports activities and those in private homes.

In his majority opinion, Justice Brian Hagedorn emphasized the Supreme Court isn’t designed to take up cases in the first instance, a job meant for circuit courts.

The lawsuit contended the county and the city of Madison unlawfully handed over their lawmaking authority to the city-county health department.
