New Dane County Emergency Order Goes Into Effect April 7

In a news release this morning, Public Health Madison and Dane County outline Emergency Order 15, which lifts or reduces many of the COVID-19 regulations.

According to the release, masks will still be required for any indoor gatherings, but gathering limits remain at 150 people if food and drink are available, and 350 if not. There is no limit on outdoor gatherings, but the release said that any event organizers must ensure enough space for people to stay six feet apart.

Self service food stations, like salad bars and buffets, may reopen along with saunas and steam rooms.
