The Wisconsin Supreme Court recently struck down the Safer At Home Order issued by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) in its entirety, except for that portion that applies to K-12 education (public and private).  Without a statewide rule, Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) issued its own order that continues the school closure through June 30.
