Public Health Madison & Dane County Extends Mask Order, Allows Exemptions for Performers
Friday, September 10, 2021 at 11:00 AM
Public Health Madison & Dane County on Thursday issued an updated face covering emergency order that allows some exemptions for performers and extends the order through Oct. 8.
The new order includes exemptions for:
  • Actively playing a wind instrument that has a fabric bell cover, or similar cover, that acts as a face covering; and
  • While presenting or performing a religious, political, media, educational, artistic, cultural, musical, or theatrical presentation as long as other spacing and vaccination requirements are met.
“In light of the absence of CDC guidance, and taking into consideration guidance from other communities, this latest version of the order includes a narrow exemption for certain performers while performing or practicing,” said Janel Heinrich, Director of Public Health Madison & Dane County. “We highly encourage all performing arts to consider all the ways in which they can reduce disease transmission, especially as the highly-contagious Delta variant continues to spread in Dane County.”
The new order went into effect on Friday, Sept. 10, and is in effect through October 8.
The previous order was set to expire on September 16.
