In recent weeks, DHS has been able to ramp up data quality assurance efforts in the Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System WEDSS , which includes correcting case status from "confirmed" or "probable" where appropriate, ensuring completeness of data fields, and reducing unknowns. Due to these efforts, data displayed on the website may change over time. In particular, dashboards and data tables that track cumulative cases or deaths, as well as those showing newly reported numbers each day may appear lower than expected - in some counties, substantially lower or even negative.

Gay men are male homosexuals , or men whose sexual identity or sexual behavior is predominantly directed toward other men. Some bisexual and homoromantic men may also dually identify as gay, and a number of young gay men today also identify as queer. Gay men today continue to face significant discrimination in large parts of the world, including in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. In the United States, many gay men still face discrimination in their daily lives,  though some openly gay men have reached national success and prominence, including Tim Cook and Pete Buttigieg. For a time, the term gay was used as a synonym for anything related to homosexual men.
