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.
