Today we received new regional data related to the Badger Bounce Back Gating Criteria showing that our efforts to contain the COVID-19 virus are working. In light of these data, the City of Menasha Health Officer is issuing COVID-19 recommendations which supersede the order issued on May 14, 2020. These recommendations are effective as of 5:00 P.M. on May 15, 2020.
Businesses, non-profits, and other entities may open provided they are able to follow the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) recommendations for their sector. The guidelines can be found here: https://wedc.org/reopen-guidelines/
Individuals and families continue practicing physical distancing and protective measures outlined on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WI DHS) website: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/protect.htm
The pandemic has not ended. COVID-19 remains present in our community, and we will continue to monitor the trajectory of the disease. If necessary, future orders may be issued to control the spread of the disease and protect the public’s health and safety.
The City of Menasha continues to work closely with our partners in the City of Appleton and Calumet, Outagamie, and Winnebago Counties.
