The City of Milwaukee Health Department said the city will move to phase 4.1 on Friday.
The new phase addresses concerns over reopening schools, restaurant and bar safety plans, as well as athletic centers and gyms.
Phase 4.1 also includes the MKE Cares mask ordinance, which went into effect on July 16.
Under the new phase, all schools, including K-12, trade schools, colleges and universities, will be able to reopen for in-person learning at 50% capacity with a health department-approved plan. Originally, schools were not allowed to reopen for in-person learning.

Gyms and athletic centers may now operate with the lesser of the three options: A) 50% of the total occupancy, B) One person for every 30 square feet or C) 250 people. Gyms are also required to comply with the mask ordinance.
The new phase will go into effect at 5 p.m. on July 31.
