What does that mean? Learn more here.
New cases continue to be reported, with 199 total cases reported in the city since the pandemic began — 36 since July 1. Seven people have died.
You can see updated city, county and state data and resources here, and they are posted three times a week on the city Facebook page. The Milwaukee County dashboard is especially informative.
Reopening continues …
- Live music returns to the South Milwaukee Downtown Market starting on Thursday, July 23, with a performance from Rohn Larson. Details on upcoming shows here.
- The South Milwaukee Public Library has extended its hours, and allows walk-in pickups of holds. No browsing allowed. Details here. From the library: Walk in the front door. Tell us what you need. We will take care of your needs! Exit through the side door. (If we are at capacity, you can wait outside or come back later.) Practice social distancing. Masks are strongly recommended. Masks are required for computer help (minimum of 3 minutes).
- The South Milwaukee School District Fitness Center has reopened for up to 12 users each for the fitness center and track (no access to the gym). Restrooms are available, but changing rooms, lockers and showers are not. Masks are required upon entering and exiting the facility, and should be worn “at your comfort” in workout areas. Users are asked to call ahead to confirm availability and make an appointment, if necessary. For more information, visit here.
- The South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center is working on a plan to reopen as well. Meanwhile, the South Milwaukee Youth Theatre Virtual Theater Academy is now underway. Details on this innovative approach here.
