Dane County Issues Amendment to Phase 2 Order

Public Health Madison & Dane County has just released a new order.

These are the only items that have changed with this order: (See the order for all requirements)

  • Private gatherings are limited to 10 or fewer people (Section 2.a.)
  • Bars and restaurants stay at 50% capacity but customers are required to use seating at all times. Seating must be physically distanced (6 feet) from other parties. Parties can only be seated with members of their own household (Section 5.b.)
  • No standing service (i.e., moving to the restroom is fine but patrons must be seated during their visit) (Section 5.b.)

This is a targeted amendment to address what we are learning during contact tracing interviews. In the last few days, 279 individuals tested positive for COVID-19. Half of these cases involve individuals who are ages 20-29. 45% of the positive cases stated that they had attended a gathering, party or meeting with people from outside their household.  Further, contract tracing efforts reveal that many of these individuals frequented bars.

Steep Increase in Dane County COVID-19 Cases Over Past Few Days

From Public Health – Madison and Dane County:

To help protect yourself and others:

  • Stay home if you’re sick or feel off. A number of new cases reported going out while symptomatic.
  • Stay home if you don’t need to go out. Working from home, virtual gatherings, and using curbside or delivery ordering are still the safest and best options to protect yourself and others.
  • Wear a mask if you go out. This is a simple, effective way to help reduce risk for yourself and others.
  • Protect your workers and customers. Follow public health requirements and recommendations.
  • Assume you have come in contact with COVID-19 if you go out. Currently, just over a third of cases didn’t know where they could’ve gotten COVID-19. Watch for symptoms like fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea. If you have these symptoms, call your doctor to be tested or visit the community test site

Dane County Phase 2 Orders Released

From Public Health Madison & Dane County

Phase 2 Orders Released

 

Today, Public Health Madison & Dane County has released Order #5, which goes into effect on June 15, 2020 at 8:00am and moves Dane County to Phase 2 of the Forward Dane plan. See our news release for more information.

New orders mean that we feel our community is prepared to move to a new phase, but that doesn’t mean the risk has changed. The virus is still as dangerous as it has been. Even as businesses reopen, community members should take precautions and be mindful that their actions affect others. We still encourage everyone to limit the amount of people they are seeing day to day, stay 6 feet away from people they don’t live with, wear face coverings when out of the house, and get tested if they need to. 

A summary of highlights from this Phase 2 order include:

  • Reopening all businesses—such as restaurants, gyms, and retail establishments—to 50% capacity with certain public health requirements and physical distancing.
  • Indoor gatherings at 50 people or fewer are allowed, with physical distancing
  • Outdoor gatherings of 100 or fewer are allowed, with physical distancing.
  • Park courts and fields are open, individuals must maintain physical distancing.
  • Sports activities have updated requirements.
  • Playgrounds and splash pads are open, with physical distancing.
  • Childcare, youth settings, and schools have updated requirements.
