MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The University of Wisconsin-Madison lifted quarantine orders for two of its largest dorms on Wednesday, on a day when the state added 56 hospitalizations from COVID-19 complications to its record total.

In the first easing of restrictions that were put into place two weeks ago when cases of the coronavirus spiked on campus, the university also announced plans to phase in some in-person classes. Wisconsin ranks third in the country in the number of cases per capita in the last two weeks, according to data compiled Tuesday by The COVID Tracking project.
