Public safety is my top priority. That’s why Waukesha County is doing everything possible to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The “Stay Safe to Stay Open” initiative is a partnership between Waukesha County government, schools, educators and families to promote simple concepts that will protect the health and wellbeing of Waukesha County Schools. The aim of Stay Safe to Stay Open is to provide educators, students  and families with the information they need to feel confident returning to school for the 2020-'21 school year.

We will continue to work with school districts throughout the school year and make updates to our guidelines as warranted. As always, each local school & district will have the ability to make adjustments to these guidlines that best serve their students & staff.

Protect the Vulnerable: 
Older adults and those with underlying medical conditions are at a higher risk for severe illness.
Stay Home If You Are Sick: Leaving home when you are sick increases the risk of exposing others to illness.
Practice Social Distancing: Respiratory illness spreads in close contact. Keep at least 6' (2 arm lengths) of distance from others when in public and avoid large gatherings.
Utilize Cloth Face Coverings: Use a clean, well-fitted face covering. Face coverings can help stop the spread of respiratory illness, especially when social distancing is not possible.
