Alliant Energy Center statement on COVID-19

As the operator of one of Wisconsin’s large gathering spaces, the Alliant Energy Center staff and Dane County leadership want to assure you that the safety and well-being of our visitors remains our highest priority. We have taken measures to keep our venues hygienic – we have stepped up the cleaning and disinfecting of all hard surfaces before, during and after events. Hand sanitizer is available in our venues in addition to opportunities for hand washing in our restroom facilities. Guests and staff are encouraged to frequently use hand sanitizer and wash their hands while visiting the Alliant Energy Center. And, guests and staff who are unwell are encouraged to stay at home.

We are taking the COVID-19 virus seriously and are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health guidelines and protocols.

Response to COVID-19 is a dynamic situation. We will keep you updated as we receive new direction and guidelines.
