Fact Sheet

OVERVIEW:

In response to issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rock County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution on May 19, 2020, to establish the Rock County Response, Reopening and Recovery Task Force, later renamed the Reopen Rock Task Force. The resolution was created to support a diverse group of Rock County community members from various market sectors who wished to work together more formally to identify and address potential challenges related to reopening in a proactive manner.

Today, the Reopen Rock Task Force meets regularly to identify, prioritize and address challenges related to reopening as a cohesive and committed group.

PARTICIPANTS:

Reopen Rock is comprised of three co-chairs and 12 sector leads representing: Chambers of Commerce, Consumer Retail, Diverse Communities, Education/Schools, Entertainment, Faith Communities, Food/Agriculture, Government, Hospitality, Manufacturing and Distribution, Non-Profit and Services.

Sector leads meet regularly with their community leaders from their sector to identify sector-specific issues, which then are shared with the larger Reopen Rock Task Force during meetings facilitated by the co-chairs. By working openly, collaboratively and proactively together, the task force is able to quickly identify potential issues and speed resolution. 

OBJECTIVES:

  • Review local metrics and developing plans related to response, reopening and recovery in Rock County
  • Serve as a focal point for community information sharing and input
  • Conduct collaborative problem solving on identified gaps
  • Share resources as needed to address priority areas of concern
