Thanksgiving message from the City of Madison

The message can be seen at . It says, in part:

"Dane County is currently under Public Health Order #10, which prohibits indoor gatherings with people you do not live with, and restricts outdoor gatherings to 10 people or less, with physical distancing. Getting tested before gathering with others only tells you if you had COVID on the day you were tested. A negative test does not necessarily mean it is safe to gather with others.

If you have concerns about a possible exposure from the Thanksgiving holiday, it is crucial to time your COVID-19 test properly.

Unless you are experiencing symptoms, waiting 3-5 days to get tested for COVID-19 after a possible exposure is critical."
