Update March 30: COVID Cases and Deaths Among People with Disabilities and Older Adults in Wisconsin

(Madison) – The Survival Coalition of more than 30 disability organizations supports the work of the
Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Governor Evers’ administration to share regularly
updated data regarding the impacts of COVID-19 in Wisconsin’s Medicaid Adult Home and CommunityBased Services system. People with disabilities and older adults, particularly those who live in
congregate or group settings are particularly vulnerable to the virus. Wisconsin’s long-term care program
enrollment is 77,432 or approximately 1.4% of the WI population but accounts for more than 1/6 of all state
COVID-19 deaths.
Survival Coalition is sharing the Department’s updated data weekly.
