Face Coverings FAQs

October 29, 2020 - Due to the escalation of COVID-19 cases that has made the ability to identify and control the spread of the virus increasingly difficult, the Franklin Health Department enacted a prioritization framework for the response to confirmed COVID-19 cases in Franklin.  Prioritization of follow-up will be given to the following groups:  Age 65 and older; Children 19 years old and younger; College age students; Individuals connected to a facility outbreak or potential outbreak; All other individuals will be contacted as capacity allows.  See our Health Alert and Community Call to Action for additional information on how you can help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

With the number of cases in our community continuing to climb, it has become necessary for all of us to pull back on non-essential public gatherings and outings.  In addition to the prioritization above, we strongly recommend all residents and businesses fall back to PHASE B of the Safe Opening Capacity Guidance effective October 30, 2020.  Guidelines for PHASE B under this plan include:

  • Public gatherings limited to 10 people;
  • Occupancy limits for restaurants and bars at 50% capacity;
  • Occupancy limits for retail establishments, salons and spa services, and gyms and places of amusement at 25% capacity.

We encourage businesses to visit the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) websites for information on safe business practices in your respective industries.  For our residents and visitors, we urge you to continue to follow physical distancing and personal protective measures as you move throughout our community or any other.  Read more.
