Business Reopening and Occupancy Guidance Available

Forward Dane Stacked

Dane County Public Health and WEDC have both shared industry specific guidance on how and when different businesses will be able to reopen.   Links to both pages have been provided on the City’s Economic Development webpage at   Our Economic Development staff offer the following recommendations when considering where you may fit in these guidelines:

  • City Economic Development staff is available to discuss these guidelines with you.  However, as these are not City-created guidance, we are in the same position and the private sector when it comes to reading and understanding exactly what these guidelines are directing us to do.   Determining where a specific business falls within the guidelines or the extent to which the business in compliant with either County or State guidelines is the responsibility of the business owner, and is ultimately at the discretion of Dane County Public Health.  
  • When in doubt about the exact meaning or category of assignment, staff recommends assuming the more conservative of the definitions and metrics to serve as guidance.
  • The Sun Prairie Fire Department and the Building Inspection Department have issued guidance about how to identify or estimate your building’s occupancy in the context of "Forward Dane".   Read more at:
