How Sun Prairie is Responding to COVID-19

Governor Evers declared a public health emergency related to the coronavirus in Wisconsin.  As you probably know, the circumstances related to the coronavirus is rapidly evolving and subject to change not only daily, but hourly. Here will be a static resource center for the City of Sun Prairie’s strategy for limiting the impact of COVID-19.
 
We appreciate your collaboration in this effort.

How to Limit the Spread:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick. Keep children home from school if they are sick. Children should be free from fever without use of fever-reducing medications for 24 hours before returning to school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surface.
  • Rethink social norms: avoid handshakes, meet virtually if possible and leave 6 feet of space between people.
  • Actively encourage employees who are sick to stay home
  • Postpone or cancel nonessential travel to areas with hot spots, both internationally and domestically.

How to Stay Civically Engaged:

  • Go online and request an absentee ballot by mail for the April 7 election. We are
    strongly encouraging that residents vote by mail for this election.
    (https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoteAbsentee)
  • Access City services online or by phone instead of in person (when feasible). 
  • Follow Sun Prairie on Facebook and sign up for our weekly e-newsletter. Any critical
    information or information on event cancellations, building closures etc. will be provided
    through those channels and posted on the Village website Newsflash section.

How the City is Responding:

  • City employees who are able will be telecommuting to limit the spread of disease amongst each other and the public.
  • Staff are increasing the frequency of cleaning of common areas, door handles, etc. in all city buildings to make the buildings as safe as possible for employees and the public.
  • City officials are working closely with Public Health of Madison and Dane County and will follow the guidance of the State and Public Health Departments for gatherings and events. We will keep the public informed of any cancellations on social media and our website.
  • As a preventative measure, we have suspended city-sponsored travel for all staff until further notice.
  • Building with high traffic including the Library and Public Works are being closed to the public
  • We’re augmenting the regular cleaning schedule to clean twice a day with a heavier emphasis on sanitizing and disinfecting of city buildings

This is a rapidly changing and evolving situation. We are closely monitoring the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and continue to follow guidance from Public Health Madison and Dane County (PHMDC) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If you are concerned about your risk of getting COVID-19 or have recently traveled to an affected area, please contact the UW Madison COVID-19 Informational hotline at (608) 720-5300 .
