The City of Milwaukee Phase 4.1 Order Update
MILWAUKEE – On May 15, 2020, the City of Milwaukee Health Department (MHD) issued a public health and safety order called ‘Moving Milwaukee Forward.’ This order uses a measured, phased approach that utilizes a data-driven gating criteria that aligns with federal and state guidance. This plan outlines the measures needed for the City of Milwaukee based on the latest science. Milwaukee has made steady progress in reducing the impact of COVID-19 but we still have a long way to go. We will continue to focus on the importance of continuation and resumption of businesses and activities for all sectors of our economy.
Below are the Five Key Indicators and Gating Criteria that drive our City’s advancement through the phases.
These measures are reassessed every Friday but advancement through the phases can only occur 14 days after we are in a new phase. Today is the 7-day mark for Phase 4.1; these measures will be reassessed on the 14-day mark, August 14, 2020. MHD will continue to monitor the situation and determine if additional protective measures are necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Reminder – Masks are required per the MKE Cares mask ordinance which went into effect on July 16th for the city of Milwaukee and the rest of the State on August 1st. Please report business violations of the mask laws and order 4.1. by calling 414-286-3674 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Complaints will remain anonymous.
Also, under our phase 4.1 order, restaurants and bars will be required to submit a safety plan and Risk Assessment Tool by 11:59 p.m. CT on September 15, 2020, to continue in person dining without capacity limits (indoors and outdoors). Documents should be sent to email@example.com with the subject line “COVID SAFETY PLAN: [insert name and address].” All plans will be reviewed in the order that they have been received, and approval may take several days. Once a business has been approved, the operator will receive a certificate or seal from the Milwaukee Health Department indicating that they may operate safely.
There are a variety of resources for businesses by sector that are available online. The City of Milwaukee has and will continue to provide a webinar series to business owners and operators with sector specific guidance, which is posted on our website www.milwaukee.gov/MMFS.
Lastly, the City of Milwaukee key indicators for Moving Milwaukee Forward Safely have been updated as they are every Thursday and are available online at www.milwaukee.gov/coronavirus.
