The order allows up to 10 people to have indoor gatherings, while limiting outdoor gatherings to 50 people. In the past, public health Madison and Dane counties limited indoor gatherings to 10 people and outdoor gatherings to 25 people. The order lasted until Tuesday.
This order allows schools to continue face-to-face learning for all grades. Universities, universities and higher education centers can also remain open, as long as safe operation policies are established in each place.
Dann County restaurants can provide 25% of indoor seating. Limitations of bars and bistros still exist.
Stores are also required to keep the capacity limit at 50%. If it is large enough, some stores will also be required to provide special time for disadvantaged groups. Sampling is not allowed.
As long as the physical distance is always maintained, the gymnasium can continue indoor courses. Indoor sports classes are limited to 10 people.
Salons and spaces must limit the number of customers to 50% of the approved capacity level. The same goes for bowling alleys and museums. Companies also need to maintain six feet between workspaces.
