Dane County issues its own Safer at Home order

Public Health Madison & Dane County is using its local authority to issue a city of Madison and Dane County order that incorporates the elements of the statewide Safer at Home order, effective immediately.

Officials will announce details of the order Wednesday evening at a 7 p.m. news conference.

Earlier Wednesday, the state Supreme Court invalidated Gov. Evers's Safer at Home extension, giving state officials until May 20 to work out a new plan.

According to the criteria Public Health Madison & Dane County has identified using the Badger Bounce Back scorecard, county data looks promising, but it is critical to continue following Safer at Home right now to keep Dane County residents healthy and keep our healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed.

By continuing to follow Safer at Home and practicing physical distancing, we can all work together to achieve these criteria and begin the phased reopening of Dane County as soon as possible.
