The Wisconsin “Safer at Home” order has now been extended until May 26, 2020 by Department of Health Services Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm.

Most of the Safer at Home guidelines remain; the new Safer at Home order can be read here:   The guidelines include permission for in-person gatherings of 10 people or less; however, UUCW’s building is still closed to all in-person meetings or gatherings.  Please contact Vicki Banville, Church Administrator, to schedule use of the church’s Zoom online meetings account for your church committee, team or group.

WI health officials believe that the safer at home order is working. More information can be found here: Projections a few weeks ago were 440-1500 deaths by April 8. With the order in place Wisconsin had only 182 deaths as of  April 15.
