Governor Tony Evers and Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Secretary-designee Andrea Palm issued a Safer at Home order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, which went into effect at 8:00 am on Wednesday, March 25th. The order states that all Wisconsinites must stay at home as much as possible and all non-essential businesses and operations must cease, with exceptions for minimum basic operations and working from home for essential businesses. All public and private gatherings of any number of people that are not part of a single household or living unit are prohibited, excluding the exceptions contained in the order. This order remains in effect until 8:00 am on Friday, April 24th or until another order is issued.

 

The Governor and Secretary- designee Palm continue to urge everyone to follow the "Social Distancing" requirements:

  • Maintaining social distancing of six feet between people
  • Washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as frequently as possible or using hand sanitizer
  • Covering coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands)
  • Regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces
  • Not shaking hands
  • Following all other public health recommendations issues by DHS and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
