Are you planning on heading to the lake soon? Summer in Brown County is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy our natural surroundings.

Here are some things to keep in mind to make sure you stay safe and healthy:

•Blue-Green algae blooms can produce toxins that can make people and animals sick after they swallow, breath in, or have contact with the water.
•Always shower off after swimming in lakes, rivers, and ponds.
• If dogs swim in scummy water, rinse them off with fresh, clean water and don’t let them lick algae off their fur.
•Don’t swim or allow your pets to swim in places where beach closure or water quality notices are posted.
•Try not to swallow the water. Besides blue-green algae, lake, river, and pond water can contain other bacteria and parasites that can make you sick if you swallow it. Always use safe water for drinking!

Thanks to our friends over at Oak Creek Health Department for making this great graphic!

Wearing your mask properly will help to slow the spread of #COVID19 in our Brown County community.

#StayHealthyBC #MaskupWisconsin

Right now, we recommend that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

If you're one of the people who has already made this your practice, we thank you! If you haven't started wearing one, now is a good time, as we are experiencing a higher rate of infection than before.

For all mask wearers, here is some guidance on wearing it correctly!

#DYK it can take up to 14 days from your time of exposure for you to test positive for #COVID19?

If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, or you are a close contact of someone who tested positive, the safest thing you can do is to self-quarantine for 14 days and monitor for symptoms.

*Please note that this graphic applies to individuals who are currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms *or* if you are a close contact to someone who has confirmed positive diagnosis.

A close contact can be defined as the following:

You are a "close contact" if any of the following situations happened while you spent time with the person with COVID-19, even if they didn't have symptoms:

•Had direct physical contact with the person (for example, a hug, kiss, or handshake).
•Were within 6 feet of the person for a total of more than 15 minutes in a single day.
•Had contact with the person's respiratory secretions (for example, coughed or sneezed on; contact with a dirty tissue; shared a drinking glass, food, towels, or other personal items).
•Live with the person or stayed overnight for at least one night in a household with the person.

Happy Friday, Brown County!

As you make your weekend plans, remember to stay home if you’re feeling sick. This is an easy way to slow the spread of #COVID19 in our community.

Here a few other tips to remember:
•Do not shop in-person for food or other things you need. Instead order online for home delivery or curbside pickup.
•Don’t gather in groups. COVID-19 spreads through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. By self-isolating you can avoid spreading the virus to others.
•Prevent the spread of germs in your home or living unit. Stay in a separate room if possible and avoid sharing dishes, towels and bedding.

Please see this important update from Governor Tony Evers.

Remember that we are all in this together. Please be respectful and kind to one another. Everyone can play a part in slowing the spread of #COVID19 in our Brown County community.

#StayHealthyBC

From the beginning, our response to this pandemic has been guided by data and science—that hasn’t changed. That’s why today I signed an statewide emergency order requiring folks ages five and over to wear masks or face coverings in public spaces with some limited exceptions.

That announcement is available here:
https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/WIGOV/bulletins/2980ec0

Wearing a face covering is a simple act of kindness and can save lives, helping to protect your family, friends, neighbors, and our frontline workers from this deadly virus. My mask protects you, your mask protects me, and our masks work best when we both wear them together.

This is another tool in the toolbox in reducing the spread of COVID-19, and the sooner we work together to box in this virus, the sooner we can get back to work, school, sports, restaurants, and get our state and our economy back on the right track.

Let’s work together to ensure our public health efforts are successful. Learn more about the new requirements and what it means for you at the FAQ document available here: https://bit.ly/30dOs2H
