6/19/20 COVID-19 UPDATE: Badger Bounce Back Phase 1

Thank you for your patience during the COVID-19 public health emergency. As state agencies continue operations, please understand that most of our staff are continuing to telework and may have limited access to files and delayed online connectivity. The department is following the Badger Bounce Back plan's phased approach to the resumption of activities that have been delayed or put on hold due to Safer at Home.

Now that the department has entered phase 1 of the plan, programs will be resuming field work, including compliance inspections. In most cases, staff will be scheduling a pre-inspection call with facilities to gather some information that had been collected in the past during on-site visits. These calls will also include discussing protocols for on-site visits that may be needed to complete all aspects of a compliance assessment.

With this in mind, we ask that our customers continue to:

  • Use email whenever possible to communicate with staff.
  • Set up conference calls or Skype meetings in lieu of in-person meetings.
  • Request electronic public records online using our standard system, whenever possible.
    • The majority of staff are not currently available to access physical files and no staff are available on-site to allow physical inspection of files by the public until the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.
  • Submit documents electronically, preferably via a download link (ftp servers, DNR system, etc.). Note: If that option is not available to you, DNR staff can receive emails up to 20 MB.

Staff will keep their voicemails and out-of-office messages up to date and will respond as they are able.
