The Eau Claire CIty and County Health Department has issued a new public health order that advises new restrictions due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in the county. The new order takes place at midnight tonight for Eau Claire County, and the primary changes in the new order (which is in effect until July 22 unless further changes are needed in the interim) include:

• Public gatherings may have up to 100 people indoors and 250 people outdoors, with physical distancing between households maintained. Any public gathering of more than 50 people is strongly discouraged.

• Reduce occupancy to 50% of usual occupancy for businesses with a posted occupancy. For any business without a posted occupancy, consider reducing occupancy by 50%.

• Public spaces and buildings, indoor and outdoor, are required to consider policies that require face mask use by all workers, customers, visitors and guests. 

 The full order and an FAQ are listed below, as well as the press conference held by the Health Department today.
