Risk Assessment Tool for Expanding Capacity in Restaurants and Bars

The purpose of this tool below is to assist the City of Milwaukee Health Department while reviewing an establishment’s COVID-19 Safety Plan during the COVID-19 pandemic. The establishment’s COVID SAFETY PLAN must address all the items listed and must be included with the submission of this document below to be considered. If elements are missing or need improvement, feedback will be provided and the establishment may resubmit the plan for review. It will be handled in the order it was received. It is important for the City of Milwaukee Health Department and other partners to work together to determine what is feasible, practical and acceptable given the unique needs and circumstances of the local community. Maintain regular communication about transmission in your area and adjust operations accordingly.

This tool covers 8 key areas that must be addressed:
• I. General Information
