Alder Carter’s Updates

Covid-19 (Face Coverings) and Truman Olson

July 13, 2020 11:08 AM


Effective on Monday, July 13, 2020, Public Health Madison & Dane County is issuing Emergency Order #8, which requires that everyone age 5 and older wear a face covering or mask when in any enclosed building where other people, except for members of the person's own household or living unit, could be present. This requirement applies to all of Dane County.

"Public health research now shows that face coverings are critical to slowing the spread of COVID-19. Given the current number of COVID-19 infections in our county, we need to all be wearing face coverings every time we leave the house," said Janel Heinrich, Director of Public Health Madison & Dane County.

Exceptions are made for certain activities such as eating at a restaurant, but during those activities, 6 feet distancing is required at all times. Some people are also exempted if they have a physical, mental, or developmental condition that prevents them from wearing a mask.

In addition to wearing a mask, these actions will help protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

Stay home if you're sick or feel off. A number of new cases reported going out while symptomatic.

Stay home if you don't need to go out. Working from home, virtual gatherings, and using curbside or delivery ordering are still the safest and best options to protect yourself and others.

Stay 6 feet from other people. Respiratory droplets are in the air when other people cough, sneeze, talk, and breathe. Staying 6 feet from others will lower the chances of you coming in contact with the virus from those droplets.

Assume you have come in contact with COVID-19 if you go out. Currently, just over a third of cases didn't know where they could've gotten COVID-19. Watch for symptoms like fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea. If you have these symptoms, call your doctor to be tested or visit the community test site. If you are a UW–Madison student, you may also contact University Health Services .
