Public Health Madison & Dane County has issued Face Covering Emergency Order #5. The new order is effective November 27, 2021. The only changes from the previous order (see Lake Effect’s summary of the previous orders here) are the following:
- A new exemption for fully vaccinated persons in enclosed spaces with other fully vaccinated persons:
“When in an enclosed space with individuals who are fully vaccinated. Individuals are fully vaccinated two (2) weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose vaccine series for COVID-19 (such as Pfizer-BioNTech’s or Moderna’s vaccine) or two (2) weeks after their first dose in a single-dose vaccine series for COVID-19 (such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine).”
- An extension of the face covering requirements until January 3, 2022.
