What is Social Distancing?

Social distancing – also called physical distancing – is a conscious effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus by reducing contact between people.

Even if you are symptom free and not part of an at-risk group, changing your lifestyle can help keep you, your family and the community safe.

For those individuals residing in Dane County, the Forward Dane plan provides guidance for the re-opening of our community. Physical distancing is still an important step in helping to reduce the risk of transmitting the coronavirus. Many counties have established their own local ordinances. Please check with your community to learn what the current guidelines are for preventing the spread of the virus.
