From Public Health Madison & Dane County:  Get up-to-the-minute data on their new data dashboard

Like so many other communities across the nation and the world, Public Health Madison & Dane County has been actively fighting this virus using proven public health tools like monitoring people who test positive and conducting rigorous contact investigations. However, public health and healthcare interventions alone are not enough to contain the virus.

What can each of us do to protect our family, neighbors, co-workers, and others?

Continuing to practice social distancing by minimizing contact.
Following quarantine orders, and isolation procedures
Limiting the number of trips outside of your home

These are our best and only tools to not overwhelm our healthcare system and save lives. Because there aren't vaccines or treatment options available yet, enough personal protective equipment in the quantities needed, or efficient and available testing for people experiencing symptom

Everyone has an active role in protecting our community. By staying at home, you are protecting the most vulnerable people as well as the people we rely on for healthcare and other essential services.

Mayor Rhodes-Conway stated "The consequences of your actions may be life or death. The virus doesn't spread itself, people are spreading it; we are spreading it. Madison and Dane County are calling on everyone in Dane County to take this seriously and do their part."

In the coming days and weeks our community will face harsh realities and difficult choices. There are a number of vulnerable populations that are going to be disproportionately impacted by this pandemic, and it's vital that our community stands together as we move into this new stage of response.

Dane County and the City of Madison encourage all residents to follow Governor Evers Safer at Home order and stay home, as well as Public Health Madison & Dane County's recommendations to monitor themselves for symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat) at all times and isolate themselves from others if they develop these symptoms.

For up to date community health information, please visit the Public Health Madison & Dane County website at, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at publichealthmdc.

Please share and/or post:

Safer at Home Order in plain language: English and Spanish/Español
