MADISON (NBC 26) -- The percentage of coronavirus tests returning a positive result remained at a high level Monday in Wisconsin at 19.7%, only slightly lower than Sunday's record high of 20.5%.

The number of tests were, however, significantly lower than the past few days. Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported 771 new coronavirus cases out of the 3,920 total number of tests reported Monday.

These latest numbers reported on the DHS website reflect an upward trend of coronavirus in the state.

No new deaths related to coronavirus were reported Monday in Wisconsin.
