D6 Items of Interest Week of November 23, 2020

November 21, 2020 11:00 PM

There are fewer meetings this week as we all prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday. Please take care! The implications of gathering today, even in a small group, are different than they were earlier in the pandemic-- the risk is higher because there is more COVID circulating. Please be mindful of the risks of attending holiday gatherings that include people not in your immediate household. How to see family and friends more safely during the holidays For people who are going to gather despite public health recommendations, creating a bubble could be a way to reduce risk. A bubble doesn't have an official definition, but it is used to describe a group of people who only have close contact with each other. Public Health Madison Dane County recommends that anyone who is forming a bubble consider all the risks that each person brings to the group. PHMDC strongly urges people to not form bubbles if people in the bubble are exposed to many others through their work, school, or personal lives. Understand and map the risks of creating bubbles or pods

 

On Friday, Public Health Madison & Dane County released an amendment to Emergency Order #10, effective immediately. The amendment adjusts the definition of mass gathering to align with the gathering limits. The intent of the order has not changed. A mass gathering is defined as "any gathering of individuals that are not members of the same household or living unit." No other changes have been made to the order. PHMDC amendment to Emergency Order #10  In-person games, sports, competitions, group exercise classes, meetings, trainings, movies, events, and conferences are all considered mass gatherings. Indoor mass gatherings of any people who do not live together are prohibited. Outdoor mass gatherings are limited to 10 people who do not live together, with physical distancing. The previous limit for gatherings was 10 indoors and 25 outdoors, with physical distancing.

 

The City of Madison's Traffic Engineering team was recently presented Intelligent Transportation Society (ITS) of Wisconsin's 2020 Project of the Year Award. This distinction was earned for the City's Active Traffic Management System, which combines communication networks with critical software applications to manage and regulate traffic control devices via physical and virtual user interfaces. These tools allow for remote monitoring and response to traffic conditions in real time. Madison Earns Intelligent Transportation Systems Award

 

The Madison Senior Center and UW-Madison Wisconsin Singers are partnering to celebrate the spirit of giving back with a FREE virtual performance. The event will take place on Tuesday, December 1st via Zoom, starting at 1pm. This year for Giving Tuesday, the Madison Senior Center will host a virtual Wisconsin Singers performance to thank our supporters for their help throughout the year. During this pandemic, we continue to virtually offer quality programs, services and volunteer opportunities; and your generous donations make it possible. Visit www.madisonseniorcenter.org  to give online now or to register for the free performance. If you have any technical challenges, email lhunt@cityofmadison.com. This performance was professionally recorded before an early closing of the Singers 19-20 Spring tour in mid-March.

 

Metro Transit and the City of Madison Transportation Commission will hold a virtual public hearing on Wednesday, December 9, at 6:00pm to review and discuss service adjustments proposed for March 2021.  Link available soon.  UPDATE: The public hearing scheduled for December 9 has been postponed until 2021. Please continue to provide your comments and feedback on the proposed changes. Metro and the City of Madison Transportation Commission will revisit the proposed changes in 2021.
