(May 22, 2020) - Following the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s action striking down the state’s Safer at Home order, Waukesha County has opted to not issue any rules or restrictions regarding team sports. Instead, we chose to provide some common-sense guidelines for residents to consider as they work towards regaining some normalcy while ensuring their families’ safety.
While there is no longer a state-issued “Safer at Home” order, our guidelines include information on protecting our most vulnerable citizens, social distancing when appropriate, washing hands, frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces, and limiting mass gatherings to groups of fewer than 50 people in all scenarios. You can find our guidance here.
We have provided these recommendations so that we may continue to monitor area hospitals to gauge the impact of more people interacting with one another. Our hope is to be able to adjust our guidance as Waukesha County and local hospitals see positive changes in the COVID-19 pandemic. Regardless of the size of the gathering, people should continue to use common sense to keep themselves and their families safe.
As you know, this continues to be a fluid situation and we are working to provide local businesses, organizations and residents with the most up-to-date information. It is important that you have conversations with your local sports organizations to make the best decision for your community and your family.
