Governor Ever’s Executive Order #94 highlights the crisis Wisconsin is facing as COVID cases skyrocket.  The order advises Wisconsinites to stay home, urges precautions Wisconsinites should take to stay safe if they have to leave their home, and encourages businesses to take additional steps to protect workers, customers, and the surrounding community.

In Dane County, Emergency Order #9 stays in effect, and everyone is encouraged to follow the additional recommendations in the state order. This includes:

  • Staying home - All individuals should stay home as much as possible and only make trips when necessary, such as to go to work, pick up groceries, or refill prescriptions.
  • Avoiding gatherings - Avoid gatherings of any size between individuals who are not members of the same household.
  • Limiting travel - Individuals are strongly encouraged to remain close to home and discouraged from engaging in unnecessary travel.

The more that everyone in Wisconsin is able to abide by these recommendations, the bigger the impact in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
