May 21, 2020: Winnebago County issues recommendations to serve as guidelines to control the transmission of the virus throughout our community. 


May 15, 2020: Effective immediately, the Winnebago County Health Department rescinds the Winnebago County Safer at Home order that was put into place on May 14, 2020. The decision to rescind the order was required of us based on legal counsel. Click here to read the press release. 


On April 16, 2020, the Safer at Home order was extended to 8 a.m. Tuesday, May 26, or until a superseding order is issued. This new Safer at Home went into effect on Friday, April 24 at 8 a.m.

Under the extended order, some businesses and activities are allowed to open back up and additional changes help make businesses safer for employees and customers.

Staying Safer at Home and physical distancing continue to be the best way to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community.
