The City of Milwaukee will begin Phase 4.1 of its coronavirus safety plan on Friday in order to help businesses, schools and other organizations continue to re-open operations.
The city says the move will include the city’s mandatory masking requirement.
Under the plan, schools will be able to operate at 50 percent capacity once the Milwaukee Health Department approves each institution’s health and safety plan. A checklist for such a plan is expected to be available at this link by the end of next week.
The city says restaurant and bar re-opening documents should go to [email protected] with the subject line “COVID SAFETY PLAN: [insert name and address].”
The Health Department also said gyms and athletic centers can open at the lowest capacity of the three parameters listed below:
– 1) 50% of the total occupancy
– 2) one person for every 30 square feet
– 3) 250 people
“Exceptions may be made during strenuous activities where social distancing can occur and mask wearing would cause difficulty breathing,” according to a city spokesperson.
Youth sports teams can also share plans with the Health Department in order to get approval to play in fall.
