Clark County Health Department’s Statement on Supreme Court Ruling

Statement from Clark County Health Department:

In light of the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling regarding the Safer at Home order, the Clark County Health Department is consulting with state and local authorities about next steps.

In an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, we are respectfully requesting that Clark County residents voluntarily continue to follow safe social distancing practices.

The health and safety of all community members remains our highest priority.

Additional details will be released soon. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

Update:

On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, the WI Supreme Court overturned the state’s Safer at Home Order. With this ruling, businesses now have the right to be open.

Although the Safer at Home Order is gone, the virus remains. In an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, we are respectfully requesting that Clark County residents, businesses, and other entities voluntarily follow safe social distancing practices.

Businesses have an important role in protecting their customers, employees, and the community. Local, state, and national resources are available to help businesses adopt best practices. Please refer to the resources listed below:

    The health and safety of all community members remains our highest priority. The CCHD continues to isolate and conduct investigations with individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and implement quarantine measures for any close contacts.

    Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
