Safer at Home

Safer at Home Order:

The COVID-19 pandemic is the greatest threat to public health in the past century, but Wisconsinites are taking the steps needed through Safer at Home and physical distancing to make a difference during this pandemic.

Wisconsin has seen as decrease in the exponential growth in the number of cases since Safer at Home was put into place on March 25.

  • Wisconsin’s rate of doubling of infections was 3.4 days in early March before Safer at Home.
  • Over the past two weeks, the rate of doubling is now approximately 12 days.

Limiting physical contact between people is the best strategy to slow the spread of COVID-19, and it is saving lives. Wisconsinites need to continue this work to keep flattening the curve.

  • There are no medical treatments or vaccines that can slow the spread of COVID-19.
  • The only strategy we have to slow the spread is to limit physical contact between people.
  • Changing this strategy now without implementing the strategies in the Badger Bounce Back plan would result in a surge of cases.
