Order #16 Goes in Effect May 5

Because Dane County COVID-19 vaccination rates are among the highest in the state and the number of cases we've seen each day have stabilized, we are issuing Emergency Order #16, which increases gathering and capacity limits for all businesses. The order goes into effect May 5 and will be in effect until June 2, 2021.

A summary of items that changed between Order #15 and Order #16 include:

  • Gathering limits increased.
  • Indoor gatherings with food and drink: Limited to 350 or less, with physical distancing except when in transit (up from 150).
  • Indoor gatherings without food and drink: Limited to 500 people or less, with physical distancing, except when in transit (up from 350).
  • Outdoor gatherings: Numbers are limited to ensure people who don't live together can maintain six feet physical distancing at all times, except when in transit.
  • Face coverings are not required when actively playing an instrument that has a bell cover, as long as people are six feet apart at all times.
  • Restaurants and taverns indoor dine-in capacity may be up to 75% of approved seating capacity, with physical distancing (up from 50% for restaurants and 25% for taverns).
  • Businesses must limit the number of individuals inside their establishment to 75% of approved capacity levels indoors (up from 50%).

If a gathering is taking place inside an establishment, the establishment must comply with both the gathering limits and the capacity limits and abide by the lower number. Face coverings are still required in indoor public spaces.

See our news releaseOrder #16, and our blog post for details.
