Safe Business Practices

Establishing, to the extent possible, curbside pick-up to reduce in-store traffic and mitigate outdoor lines.

Establishing entry lines outside of the business with markings for patrons to enable them to stand at least six (6) feet apart from one another while waiting to enter. Businesses are encouraged to also use alternatives to lines, including allowing customers to wait in their vehicles for a text message or phone call and scheduling pick-ups or entries to the store.

Ensuring one-way traffic in shopping aisles.

Increasing standards of facility cleaning and disinfection to limit worker and patron exposure to COVID-19, as well as adopt protocols to clean and disinfect in the event of a positive COVID-19 case in the workplace.

Adopting policies to prevent workers from entering the premises if they display respiratory symptoms or have had contact with a person with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19.

Complying with Physical Distancing and Protective Measure Requirements.

'

Physical Distancing and Protective Measures

. . '

Maintaining physical distancing of six (6) feet between people not residing in a single living unit or household.

Washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as frequently as possible or using hand sanitizer.

Covering coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands).

Regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces.

Not shaking hands.

Use of a mask or cloth face covering. (Note: the use of masks or cloth face coverings is strongly recommended but shall not be required due -to equity concerns regarding the challenges that either may cause for individuals because of disabilities and/or shortages of PPE.)

Following all other public health recommendations issued by State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Milwaukee County Department of Health & Human Services and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

*Criteria for moving between phases.

Public Health Officials will continue to monitor key COVID-19 indicators and will communicate to the public regarding via social media which phase we are currently in and if we are approaching the transition to a new phase.

Recommendations for a Phased Approach to Reopening Greendale

 

The Greendale Health Department’s mission is to protect the safety and health of the community by supplying accurate health information, building collaborative partnerships, and providing services that enhance health and prevent illness.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, information about the virus was updated frequently, as this was a brand-new virus, unknown to the world prior to this outbreak.  The Greendale Health Department continues to base all recommendations on the most up-to-date scientific information.  

The Greendale Health Department recommends a “phased approach” to reopening the Village of Greendale.  This phased approach minimizes our community’s risk of exposure to the virus while supporting our community’s way to get back to business.

The following five measures will be evaluated weekly in order to help make recommendations on moving through the phases and reopening Greendale:

  1. COVID-19 cases:  Is there a downward trend of positive cases?
  2. Testing:  Are all residents with symptoms able to be tested for the virus?
  3. Hospital care:  Do area hospitals have the capacity to treat all patient requiring hospitalization?
  4. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):  Do hospital staff have an adequate amount of PPE to safely provide care?  PPE includes N95 masks, gowns, and hand sanitizer.
  5. Contact tracing: Are all resident who test positive for the virus interviewed within 24 hours of the test result?  Are all close contacts interviewed within 48 hours of the test result?

Milwaukee County Emergency Management posts current information on each of the five measures on their website using a color-coded alert system:

  • Green:     Excellent result
  • Yellow:     Proceed with caution
  • Red:        Measure is a concern

 If all the measures are green or yellow, the Greendale Health Department will recommend moving to the next phase of reopening.  For example, on May 22, 2020, we moved from Phase A to Phase B because we had all yellow and green measures.  We will assess the measures again in 2 weeks. If more than half the measures are green and none of them are red, we will recommend moving to Phase C.  We will then continue with recommendations in Phase C until widespread protections are available.
