On Tuesday, Madison365 posted data regarding coronavirus spread in specific the neighborhoods and communities through June 26. Today’s data are not included, but will be included in an update next week.
Yesterday, Public Health of Madison and Dane County updated their current order with additional restrictions that included limiting outdoor gatherings to 25 or fewer, indoor gatherings to 10 or fewer, as well as limiting indoor dining capacity to 25% for restaurants – as defined by the order – and allowing bars – as defined by the order – to provide take (no indoor dining). Bars and restaurants can still have outdoor seating as long as it followed social distancing. The Tavern League of Wisconsin called the new order “unlawful.”
“Dane County tavern owners have had their businesses closed/restricted for over 100 days. These unlawful orders are causing irreparable financial harm to their small businesses, families and employees while other businesses continue to operate in the county,” Tavern League of Wisconsin president Chris Marsicano wrote in a statement.
Public Health of Madison and Dane County reports long waits for testing at Alliant Energy Center once again. Public Health officials are encouraging to seek testing with their primary care providers if they are able to rather than wait in the long lines.
We will have an update of today’s statewide numbers later this afternoon.
