Gov. Tony Evers announced the Badger Bounce Back Plan today, outlining information regarding reopening the economy.

The order includes three phases following the Safer at Home Order, which is currently in effect. The transition to each phase will be announced by the Department of Health Services.

Phase one will allow mass gatherings of up to 10 people; restaurants may open with social distancing requirements; some restriction removal (retail restrictions for essential businesses and operations), additional operations for non-essential businesses, K-12 schools can resume in-person operations, child care settings continuing full operations.

Phase two will include mass gatherings of up to 50 people; restaurants can begin full operations; bars may reopen with social distancing requirements; non-essential businesses resume operations with social distancing; post-secondary education institutions may resume operations.

Phase three will resume all business activity and gatherings — there will be minimal preventative measures in place for the general public, more protective measures for populations that are vulnerable.

Gov. Evers Directs DHS to Extend Wisconsin's Safer at Home Order

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today directed Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Secretary-designee Andrea Palm to extend the Safer at Home order from April 24, 2020 to 8 a.m. Tuesday, May 26, 2020, or until a superseding order is issued. The order implements some new measures to ensure safety and support the progress we've made in containing COVID-19, but also allows certain activities to start up again.

“A few weeks ago, we had a pretty grim outlook for what COVID-19 could mean for our state, but because of the efforts of all of you, Safer at Home is working. That said, we aren't out of the woods just yet,” said Gov. Evers. “As I've said all along, we are going to rely on the science and public health experts to guide us through this challenge. So, as we extend Safer at Home, I need all of you to continue doing the good work you've been doing so we can keep our families, our neighbors, and our communities safe, and get through this storm together.”

“Before we lift Safer at Home, the steps of testing and more robust public health measures must be in place,” explained Secretary-designee Palm. “These steps will help us reduce the risk of a second wave of the virus. If we open up too soon, we risk overwhelming our hospitals and requiring more drastic physical distancing measures again.”

The extension of the Safer at Home order includes a few changes. Some changes allow more businesses and activities to open back up, while other changes help make businesses safer for employees and customers. The changes in this order include:

Businesses and activities ramping up service and operations:

Public libraries: Public libraries may now provide curb-side pick-up of books and other library materials.

Golf Courses: Golf courses may open again, with restrictions including scheduling and paying for tee times online or by phone only. Clubhouses and pro shops must remain closed.

Non-essential Businesses: Non-essential businesses will now be able to do more things as Minimum Basic Operations, including deliveries, mailings, and curb-side pick-up. Non-essential businesses must notify workers of whether they are necessary for the Minimum Basic Operations.

Arts and Crafts Stores: Arts and craft stores may offer expanded curb-side pick-up of materials necessary to make face masks or other personal protective equipment (PPE). Aesthetic or Optional Exterior Work: Aesthetic or optional exterior law care or construction is now allowed under the extended order, so long as it can be done by one person.

Are you or the kids feeling cooped up and a bit stressed? Check out the Wisconsin Community Tree Map, a compilation of tree inventories from around the state. Village of Mukwonago publicly maintained trees are on the map that you can look at on your phone, allowing you to take a stroll down your street or in a park and learn the names of your friendly, neighborhood trees. But even if not looking at the map, a stroll outside is a perfect salve to stress and cabin fever. Thank you for viewing, your Village Forester, Brennen McCuen.

Update:
For clarification: The Mukwonago Fire Department has also issued a burn ban in conjunction with WI DNR. We understand the frustration with this decision and hope citizens realize that this decision has been made to protect citizens and first responders during these unusual times.

With the spring like weather upcoming many people will consider doing yard clean up and burning. A friendly reminder that the Wisconsin DNR has suspended all burn permits until April 24th.

From the Mukwonago Fire Department:

Update on COVID-19

Today the Waukesha County Health Department contacted Fire Chief Stien to report the first case that was reported to their department in the Mukwonago Community. The individual is seeking medical treatment at this time. No other positive COVID-19 cases have been reported to the Mukwonago Fire Department prior to today from the Health Department.

We realize that there are most likely more COVID-19 people in the community and they probably have not been tested yet to know that they have COVID-19. For that, MFD personnel will continue to protect ourselves with additional PPE to help protect you and the community. We appreciate everyone adhering to the social distancing and staying home where it is safe.

A couple of things to expect if you call for an ambulance currently are questions from the dispatcher on how the sick person is feeling. We need the information from the sick person if they can talk to tell us, about what symptoms they have. COUGH, CHILES, FEVER, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, ECT. Not all calls are COVID-19 calls. We still have people that may have a heart attack, fall downstairs and have trauma, blood sugar problem, strokes, and many other issues.

What has changed in our response is how we greet you at the door, we are responding with more PPE ( Personal Protective Equipment) to protect ourselves so we can keep ourselves healthy and continue to help other people in the community. Also if the person we are coming to help is able to meet us at your front door or if weather permits for them to meet us outside your home it makes it safer for our personnel and we can assist you to our ambulance to be observed, however not a requirement.

As we get more information to share with the community we will have it posted on our Page. Here is the link to the Waukesha County Health Department for additional information they are sharing. https://www.waukeshacounty.gov/publichealth/

Residents of Mukwonago, Wisconsin. As of late there has been a lot of information and discussion regarding Covid 19. As of 3/31 MFD has not been informed of any positive cases of community spread of Covid 19 in the @ Village of Mukwonago or Town of Mukwonago. @ The Village of Mukwonago Police Department

What does this mean? This means that so far our community has done a great job of social distancing and self quarantine!

What this does NOT MEAN is that it is safe to stop doing the things we have been doing. We have noticed a definite increase in the number of people out and about in our community as of late. PLEASE STAY VIGILANT!

We all want to get back to our normal lives and the harder we work at staying vigilant now the sooner that will happen.

We also want to thank Citizens Bank for their generous donation of pens to provide each voter to use throughout their voting experience and take home to prevent the spread.

What to do if you are sick and it is likely COVID 19.
Stay home except to get medical care
You should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home
People: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.
Animals: Do not handle pets or other animals while sick, if possible.
Call ahead before visiting your doctor
If you have a medical appointment, call the healthcare provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.
Wear a facemask
You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) or pets and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then people who live with you should not stay in the same room with you, or they should wear a facemask if they enter your room.
Cover your coughs and sneezes
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues in a lined trash can; immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60-95% alcohol covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Soap and water should be used preferentially if hands are visibly dirty.
Avoid sharing personal household items
You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding with other people or pets in your home. After using these items, they should be washed thoroughly with soap and water.
Clean your hands often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Soap and water should be used preferentially if hands are visibly dirty. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Clean all “high-touch” surfaces every day
High touch surfaces include counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables. Also, clean any surfaces that may have blood, stool, or body fluids on them. Use a household cleaning spray or wipe, according to the label instructions. Labels contain instructions for safe and effective use of the cleaning product including precautions you should take when applying the product, such as wearing gloves and making sure you have good ventilation during use of the product.
Monitor your symptoms
Seek prompt medical attention if your illness is worsening (e.g., difficulty breathing) either by calling a COVID hotline, seeking a virtual visit (listed on first page) or calling you healthcare provider. Before seeking care in person, call your healthcare provider and tell them that you have, or are being evaluated for, COVID-19. Put on a facemask before you enter the facility. These steps will help the healthcare provider’s office to keep other people in the office or waiting room from getting infected or exposed.

If you have a medical emergency and need to call 911, notify the dispatch personnel that you have, or may have COVID-19. If possible, put on a facemask before emergency medical services arrive.
ENDING ISOLATION
Persons with COVID-19 who have symptoms and were directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue home isolation under the following conditions:
• You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of no fever without the use medicine that reduces fevers)
AND
• other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath have improved)
AND
• at least 7 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared
Individuals with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 who have not had any symptoms may discontinue home isolation when at least 7 days have passed since the date of their first positive COVID-19 diagnostic test and have had no subsequent illness.

INFORMATION FOR HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS, INTIMATE PARTNERS AND CAREGIVERS OF PERSONS WITH SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19
Household members, intimate partners, and caregivers may have close contact with a person with symptomatic COVID-19 either lab proven or likely based on symptoms. Close contacts should monitor their health; they should call a hotline, seek virtual care or contact their healthcare provider right away if they develop symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 (e.g., fever, cough, shortness of breath).
Close contacts should also follow these recommendations:
• Make sure that you understand and can help the patient follow their healthcare provider’s instructions for medication(s) and care. You should help the patient with basic needs in the home and provide support for getting groceries, prescriptions, and other personal needs.
• Monitor the patient’s symptoms. If the patient is getting sicker, call his or her healthcare provider and tell them that the patient has or may have COVID-19 or call the hotlines or seek a virtual visit. If the patient has a medical emergency and you need to call 911, notify the dispatch personnel that the patient has or may have COVID-19.
• Household members should stay in another room or be separated from the patient as much as possible. Household members should use a separate bedroom and bathroom, if available.
• Prohibit visitors who do not have an essential need to be in the home.
• Household members should care for any pets in the home. Do not handle pets or other animals while sick.
• Make sure that shared spaces in the home have good air flow, such as by an air conditioner or an opened window, weather permitting.
• Perform hand hygiene frequently. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60 to 95% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Soap and water should be used preferentially if hands are visibly dirty.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• The patient should wear a facemask when you are around other people. If the patient is not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), you, as the caregiver, should wear a mask when you are in the same room as the patient.
• Wear a disposable facemask and gloves when you touch or have contact with the patient’s blood, stool, or body fluids, such as saliva, sputum, nasal mucus, vomit, urine.
o Throw out disposable facemasks and gloves after using them. Do not reuse.
o When removing personal protective equipment, first remove and dispose of gloves. Then, immediately clean your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Next, remove and dispose of facemask, and immediately clean your hands again with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Avoid sharing household items with the patient. You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, bedding, or other items. After the patient uses these items, you should wash them thoroughly (see below “Wash laundry thoroughly”).
• Clean all “high-touch” surfaces, such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables, every day. Also, clean any surfaces that may have blood, stool, or body fluids on them.
o Use a household cleaning spray or wipe, according to the label instructions. Labels contain instructions for safe and effective use of the cleaning product including precautions you should take when applying the product, such as wearing gloves and making sure you have good ventilation during use of the product.
• Wash laundry thoroughly.
o Immediately remove and wash clothes or bedding that have blood, stool, or body fluids on them.
o Wear disposable gloves while handling soiled items and keep soiled items away from your body. Clean your hands (with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer) immediately after removing your gloves.
o Read and follow directions on labels of laundry or clothing items and detergent. In general, using a normal laundry detergent according to washing machine instructions and dry thoroughly using the warmest temperatures recommended on the clothing label.
• Place all used disposable gloves, facemasks, and other contaminated items in a lined container before disposing of them with other household waste. Clean your hands (with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer) immediately after handling these items. Soap and water should be used preferentially if hands are visibly dirty.
• Discuss any additional questions with your state or local health department or healthcare provider. Check available hours when contacting your local health department.

With all this great weather we’ve been having, maybe the village should consider destroying some more wetlands and rezoning the flood plains so they can develop more?
Hey Village of Mukwonago I see an excepted offer on the Horter Property, how much money did we lose on this lot ??
Does anyone know who to ask or who is responsible for stop and go lights? Specifically the ones at 83 and Wolf Run? They recently changed the left turn arrow from flashing yellow to hard red and the green arrow is quite short. Have there been a lot of accidents at this intersection? Just wasn’t sure with whom to discuss it—the DOT? The police? Village/township?

Who do I talk to about the poor maintance of the sidewalk in front of the cemetery? Last night I about broke my ankle walking my dogs there. This is not the first time. In my 8 years of walking the dogs, it has been an on going issue. It is the worst maintained sidewalk that I have come across in the village.
