"SAFER AT HOME ORDER EXPLANATION"

Dear Permit Holder,

On March 24, 2020, Governor Evers issued the “Safer at Home” Order closing all Nonessential Wisconsin businesses until 8:00 a.m., Friday, April 24, 2020 unless a superseding order is issued by the Governor.

The Governor's order applies to the entire state. All Wisconsinites must stay at home as much as possible and non-essential businesses and operations must cease, with limited exceptions for minimum basic operations and working from home. All public and private gatherings of any number of people that are not part of a single household or living unit are prohibited, except for the limited exceptions contained in the order.

In turn, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation has clarified to the County of Door, that short term rentals are not classified as an essential business. The County of Door issued this information as part of their COVID-19 daily update.

"March 25, 2020: The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation has Determined that Short Term Rentals are not covered as "Essential Businesses and Operations" under the ”Safer at Home” Order and must cease operation or will be subject to enforcement."

The Door County Tourism Zone Commission is sharing this information with you so that you are aware of the order. Should you have questions about operating, businesses should consult the information page on the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) website, here: https://wedc.org/essentialbusiness/.

As this public health emergency develops, we will continue to keep you informed.

Sincerely,

Joshua J. Van Lieshout

Chair, Door County Tourism Zone Commission


DOOR COUNTY HEALTH ADVISORY TO SEASONAL AND SECOND HOMEOWNERS

For Immediate Release Date: 3/23/2020

Contact: Daniel Kane – Emergency Management Director 920-746-7195

Door County Health Advisory to Seasonal and Second Homeowners

[DOOR COUNTY] – Pursuant to WI. Stat. 252.03(1), the Door County Public Health Officer has issued a Travel Advisory Order due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the national spread of the COVID-19 virus:

1. Due to high community transmission in certain area of the state and across the nation, Door County Public Health is recommending that you stay in your permanent home area if you have a seasonal or second home in Door County. Door County has well trained and capable medical personnel, but staffing is limited and stretched thin during this emergency. We make this statement in hopes of limiting the demands placed on local hospitals, emergency personnel, nurses and doctors.

2. People who have seasonal homes in Door County, please stay at your winter homes at this time. If you are already back in Door County you are encouraged to self-quarantine for fourteen (14) days.

3. Door County has a large population of older adults and others who are identified to have a higher risk of serious complications from COVID-19. It is our top priority to keep people in Door County healthy and safe.

4. On March 17, 2020, the Door County Board of Supervisors issued a countywide COVID-19 Emergency Declaration. Please be aware that additional health and travel restrictions may be imposed during this time.

5. This is an ever-changing and very serious health situation and Door County needs to be diligent in its response. Door County Public Health is reminding all county residents to practice good social distancing and to self-isolate as much as possible. Individuals should limit trips out of the house to essential travel.

UPDATE FROM ADVANCED DISPOSAL

Dear Valued Customer,

Advanced Disposal’s motto is “Service First, Safety Always”. At Advanced Disposal, safety is of utmost importance and should not be ranked as it is our lifeblood: the safety of our employees, our customers and the general public wherever we are operating. As the world is adjusting daily to the challenges that COVID-19 is creating for all of us, rest assured we are prepared to continue providing our essential services to you and your residents. As a company, we are implementing policies and procedures to ensure that our employees are as safe as possible while performing our services, and to keep our customers and the public safe as well.

EFFECTIVE MARCH 24, 2020, ADVANCED DISPOSAL IMPLEMENTED THE FOLLOWING CHANGES TO OUR COLLECTION SERVICE:

- All trash/refuse and recycling must be placed in the company designated cart. Loose items outside of the container will not be collected.

- All bulk item pickup/collection is suspended until further notice.

- At this time, yard waste service has been postponed until May 1st. During the first week of May, any yard waste accumulations will be collected within normal guidelines for the yard waste season.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused tremendous disruption to our personal and professional lives, and Advanced Disposal is not immune to these events. At this time, we are adjusting our workforce and practicing the protocols and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC): cleaning and disinfecting, social spacing, remote workstations, etc.

In terms of our front line services and collection services, we are providing a public health service and will continue to deliver our services as efficiently and effectively as possible. We stand ready to adjust as needed as more waste materials move from the commercial/industrial sector to the residential sector due to school closures, reduced hospitality/leisure activities and reduced commercial/industrial activities.

Lastly, communication will be very important over the next few weeks. We know how much your community relies on our services, and we truly view our relationship as a partnership. As of this time, all disposal facilities are operational and we are operating as close to 100% workforce as possible in providing collection services. In the event of any issues that could affect collections in your community, we will be reaching out immediately to advise of the issue, and determine a response that works for both partners. Each day we are receiving more information which causes adjustments, but we want to make sure our partners know as soon as possible to avoid confusion or add stress to an already challenging time.

Please visit your local facility page to confirm of any service changes and contact us directly if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks for your partnership,

Advanced Disposal Customer Care
