State Fair Park was chosen as a location for an Alternate Care Facility (ACF), to care for COVID-19 patients should there be insufficient hospital capacity in southeastern Wisconsin in the weeks ahead.

It is important that everyone continue to stay at home, practice social distancing and all the safety measures necessary to keep the COVID-19 spread from progressing. The need for and use of the Alternative Care Facility will largely be dependent on the rate of infection in our community.
