WALA continues to be your advocate in providing resources to work through this public health situation.  We are committed to delivering the most up-to-date information as circumstances continue to develop.


Governor Evers has prohibited mass gatherings of more than 10 people.  There are specific exceptions for certain business, services, and healthcare entities including assisted living and other long-term care communities.  You can read the full Emergency Order #5 by clicking here. 


The CDC is now recommending that long-term care facilities, including all assisted living communities follow the updated CMS guidelines for restricting all visitors with exceptions for compassionate, end-of-life care.  In addition, the memo contains guidelines for internal resident and staff screenings.  You can read the entire memo by clicking here.
