• Public Health Madison & Dane County issued a new order 
    stating that Phase One of the Forward Dane phased reopening strategy began May 26th. Under Phase One, many businesses will be able to open at up to 25 percent capacity while also maintaining social distancing requirements.

    Now is the time for businesses to review Forward Dane and work on a reopening plan that includes policies for hygiene, cleaning, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and physical distancing. This is also a good time to communicate the plan in advance with your employees so they are familiar with expectations.

    Our team is currently reviewing the order and will share a more detailed analysis later today. In the meantime, you can read the full order here.
