The Health & Economy Dashboard is compiled by the MMAC using a combination of metrics from state public health experts and other organizations. It provides a guide for conditions that would inform a safe re-opening of the economy.
Metrics are based on the current environment and could change over time. These guiding conditions can be weighed alongside other economic and societal considerations.

What is SE HERC?
In 2014, Wisconsin established seven healthcare emergency readiness coalition regions (HERC) to coordinate how public health, healthcare institutions, and first responder agencies will manage their efforts to enact a uniform and unified response to an emergency, like the current pandemic.
SE HERC includes Kenosha, Fond du Lac, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Washington, Waukesha and Walworth counties.
