MADISON, Wis. -- It's been one week since Gov. Tony Evers announced the 'Badger Bounce Back' plan, a phased approach to reopening Wisconsin's economy.

Monday morning, Gov. Evers will give a live update on the plan and where Wisconsin stands when it comes to meeting the plan's stated criteria. The update is not open to the public.

Under the plan, Wisconsin must see a 14-day downward trajectory in positive cases as a percentage of total tests. The state must also continue to increase testing, and increase its ability to trace people with the virus.

Once Wisconsin meets the above criteria, it can enter the first of three phases designed to reopen commercial and social activity.

Phase one would include reopening restaurants with social distancing in place, and getting back into childcare facilities. Phase two would allow gatherings of up to 50 people, and include reopening bars. In phase three, all business activity and gatherings would be resumed.

Currently, Wisconsin has not seen a 14-day downward trajectory in cases that would allow it to reopen. You can see the latest data here.
