City of De Pere Rescinds Safer at Home Order PDF Print E-mail

coronavirus-small-businessCity follows Brown County to allow businesses to reopen without risk of penalty or prosecution.


DE PERE, WI - "In response to a sudden change of direction from Brown County Health & Human Services on Friday, May 15, the City of De Pere is immediately withdrawing its local order that continued provisions of the state’s Safer-at-Home Order.

This move allows businesses in the City of De Pere to reopen without risk of penalty or prosecution, although the De Pere Health Department and other local officials strongly urge businesses and groups – and any patrons of these entities - to continue observing the public health guidance of the CDC and State while re-opening and resuming operations.

In addition to this, as always, the De Pere Health Department is available for advice and guidance as well.

Initially, after the Wisconsin Supreme Court overturned a statewide Safer-at-Home order on Wednesday, the City of De Pere joined Brown County (both departments have separate jurisdiction, but often work hand-in-hand due to proximity) and several other localities across the state in issuing local orders continuing Safer-at-Home guidance until May 20. This measure was announced yesterday, and done due to ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks and health concerns. Moreover, this order sought to create viable time to create more structured guidance for local businesses on how to safely re-open and resume operations from our health department.

Despite the City of De Pere wanting to foster this unified approach and avoid additional confusion for our citizens and local businesses, numerous surrounding localities, including Brown County Health and Human Services, have reversed course.

This has left our City in a difficult position, as we do not want to position ourselves on an island in our region and create further inconsistency and confusion in the County and surrounding area. Therefore, given this new direction our regional health partners have taken, and not wishing to create further divisive action or patterns of operations at odds with our neighboring communities, we are rescinding our Safer-at-Home order.

Despite this action, local government, our health department, and area businesses will continue to work steadfastly together to develop clear, strategic and consistent guidance on how to restart the local economy. That process will continue, with an eye toward providing businesses and organizations with best practices to allow them to operate in the best interests of public health and safety."

gb-documentPolice Department is asking the Green Bay Community for voluntary compliance with the order for the safety of everyone.


GREEN BAY, WI - There is a public health order currently in place, issued on May 13, 2020 by Brown County Health and Human Services Department-Public Health Division (Public Health). The City of Green Bay and the Green Bay Police Department are asking for the Green Bay Community for voluntary compliance with the order for the safety of everyone in the Green Bay community.

Brown County Public Health does not expect or intend local law enforcement agencies to enforce the county health order declared last night. They understand this is a health emergency and issue but they may at times need the support of local law enforcement.

Reported violations of the order may be investigated by Brown County Public Health.

All reported violations of the order called in to the Brown County Communications Center will be vetted by Communication Center personnel. Generally speaking, safer at home order violations will not result in an officer being dispatched. Rather, those violation will be logged and investigated by Public Health if they deem it necessary.

Brown County Public Health’s actions may include education, warnings, citations or license revocation. The Health Department wants to emphasize voluntary compliance and will try to take the least restrictive measure as possible to gain compliance.

A citizen can report a Public Health order violation by calling 448-6400 or emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
