What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Featured in Corona COVID-19 Response, State of Wisconsin

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

How long can I claim UI benefits in Wisconsin?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance Benefits, State of Wisconsin

You start a benefit year when you file a new initial claim application. A benefit year lasts 52 weeks. When one benefit year ends, the week that you file your next initial claim application will start a new benefit year.

During the 52 weeks of each benefit year, there is a maximum amount of unemployment benefits you can be paid. This is called your “maximum benefit amount” (MBA). The MBA is the lesser of 26 times your WBR or 40% of your total base period wages from all covered employment. Wages that you earn during a benefit year will not increase your MBA or your WBR for that benefit year.

Use your MBA as you would a checking account balance. As you are paid weekly benefits, simply subtract the amount you are paid from your MBA balance to know how much you can still be paid for that benefit year.

What is the weekly benefit rate (WBR)?

Featured in Apply for Unemployment Insurance Benefits, State of Wisconsin

The weekly amount of unemployment benefits you are paid when you have no wages or other income during the week. It is 4% of the total high quarter wages from all covered employment in your base period.

The minimum WBR in the State of Wisconsin is $54, requiring high quarter earnings of $1,350; and the maximum WBR is $370, requiring high quarter earnings of $9,250.

Please note that if you do not have enough earnings for the minimum benefit rate, you do not qualify for unemployment benefits.
