Access to be restricted near UW’s Memorial Union Terrace

MADISON (WKOW) -- UW-Madison has issued a new order that will limit access to popular places on campus.

It's part of an effort to keep people safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Temporary fencing will be going up along the lakeshore by the Memorial Terrace Union, Alumni Park and the Goodspeed Family Pier.

The order requires anyone on campus to follow the 6-foot social distancing guideline, limit the number of people in one area and remain outside of areas that are closed with fences, gates or other barriers.

Violators could be ticketed.

"There is nothing like summer on the Terrace and this year more than ever, we are committed to ensuring our community can enjoy this special place," said Mark Guthier, associate vice chancellor for student affairs and director of the Wisconsin Union. "We appreciate everyone's patience as we work to put in place measures to welcome members and guests back safely."

"Like everyone else, we're looking forward to getting back to a sense of normalcy and enjoying our beautiful campus," said Kristen Roman, UW-Madison Police Chief. "We appreciate everyone's assistance in abiding by these new university orders as we start preparing for parts of campus to reopen."
