Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19): Information and FAQs

Madison, Wisconsin - UW Health’s message to the community on Monday, March 16 is about social distancing.


Social distancing is a strategy to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. This is a conscious effort to reduce contact between people to slow down the spread of the virus.


Even if you are symptom free and not part of an at-risk group, you still need to change your lifestyle for the time being.

The COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, and these decisions are made with the best interest of patient, staff and community in mind.


UW Health will provide a daily media update for the community.
