Madison, Wisconsin – Dane County leaders have issued another public health order restricting indoor and outdoor gatherings.
Emergency Health Order № 12 enters into force on Wednesday and essentially reflects the current one. It expires on February 10.
The order allows indoor gatherings of up to 10 people and limits outdoor gatherings to 50 people. Previously, Madison & Dane County Public Health limited indoor gatherings to 10 people and limited outdoor gatherings to 25 people. This order remains in force until Tuesday.
Schools have the right to continue to study in person for all levels in order. Colleges, universities and higher education centers can also remain open as long as each location sets a policy for safe operations.
Restaurants in Dane County can offer indoor seats with a capacity of 25%. Restrictions on bars and taverns remain in force.
Stores are also required to maintain capacity limits of 50%. Some stores, if large enough, will also need to have special opening hours for vulnerable people. Sampling of goods is not allowed.
Gyms can continue indoors, as long as physical distance can be maintained at all times. Indoor exercise classes are limited to 10 people.
Salons and spaces must limit the number of customers to 50% of the approved capacity levels. The same goes for places like bowling alleys and museums. Businesses also need to keep six feet between workspaces.
The new order still requires people to wear face pads in public places.
Violation of the emergency order could result in a $ 1,000 fine, according to the city of Madison.
Public health orders will continue to be issued in 28-day increments, which are two incubation periods for COVID-19 disease, and have been developed in response to the latest local data.
