Dane County Safer at Home Guidelines in Place (5/13/2020)

As you are likely aware, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court yesterday issued a decision in the challenge filed by the Legislature against the extension of the Safer at Home order.

Subsequently, Public Health Madison & Dane County has used its local authority to issue a City of Madison and Dane County order. The local order incorporates the elements of the former statewide Safer at Home order and was effective as of yesterday (5/13/2020) evening. Additional information is available here:
