Badger Bounce Back

Badger Bounce Back

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers’ plan calls for opening our businesses like a dial – a few industries at a time with the potential to turn back the dial if numbers turn negative. To move the dial, we must first get through “gates” (aka Wisconsin Gating Criteria).  The shift is from “boxing in” everyone to “boxing in” the virus until a vaccine is created.

During Gating

THE STATE IS meeting CORE RESPONSIBILITIES

  1. increasing testing – logically, will result in more positive, and more tracing
  2. hiring more tracers (everyone a positive test patient was exposed to)
  3. tracking – stats, including watching for resurgence

 As well as ensuring health care is equipped and prepared and advising residents on hygiene, cloth face coverings and physical distancing.

EMPLOYERS ARE

  1. continuing good hygiene
  2. sharing best practices
  3. physically distancing
  4. doing temperature checks and symptom screening, test
  5. isolating and contact tracing positive-testing employees
  6. sanitizing – especially high traffic and common areas, and
  7. reducing business travel

As well as encouraging symptomatic employees to stay home.
