Public Health Madison & & Dane County announced Monday that the order will now be extended till November 27th. The previous mandate was set up to end later on this week on November 5. Rather, the new order will work on that date.
PHMDC says the order will end after 22 days, with no strategies to set up another one at this time.
” This decision comes as an outcome of reducing case rates, increasing vaccination rates and the growth of eligibility for booster doses which will only help strengthen our cumulative immunity,” PHMDC director Janel Heinrich said in a release. “It is no coincidence that transmission is dropping; it reflects the outcome of deliberate, effective public health interventions and another extraordinary effort by the people of Dane County.”
Authorities say the anticipated approval for vaccines for kids between the ages of 5 and 11 also played a role in their decision to allow the order to expire later this month.
” Our main objective with masking guidelines continues to be securing those most vulnerable to the virus, including unvaccinated children,” Dane County Executive Joe Parisi said. “We understand using masks assists keep kids from getting ill in school settings and keeps kids in school. As quickly as the Wisconsin Department of Health Services authorizes us to do so, we have the capability to vaccinate lots of people rapidly and are prepared to get our kids immunized as soon as possible.”
Dane Countys mask mandate remains the only county-wide indoor face covering required in the state.
