Thanks to our law enforcement partners!

Joint Informational Release- Face Covering Order

Our approach has been and will continue to be to help educate, help clarify questions relating to the order, consult with the proper governing authority, and evaluate each complaint on a case by case basis. Compliance by the public is of course the avenue we have asked of our citizens in all matters during the pandemic and that has not changed.

We encourage everyone to take precautions to keep themselves and others safe. We also understand and recognize different viewpoints and we are doing everything we can to protect people from becoming sick, while also protecting the individual rights of our citizens.

In order to provide some clarification, please be advised Door County Law Enforcement simply doesn’t have the personnel available to respond to complaints of individuals violating the Governor’s mandate. Door County Law Enforcement will continue to respond to reports or complaints from a business owner, manager or other premise owner who has already requested that an individual leave a premise for failing to comply with the face covering mandate as it relates to that specific premise. We anticipate that these circumstances will be rare, but enforcement is necessary under these circumstances because they are situations where a disturbance may be likely. This enforcement response is consistent with most, if not all, of the other law enforcement agencies throughout Northeast Wisconsin.

Please do not contact the Door County Communications Center to report people not wearing face coverings, as they, too, are very busy handling urgent law enforcement, EMS, and fire-related calls.

We’ve already received numerous calls on what should be done if an individual isn’t wearing a face covering. The Governor’s FAQs related to this order states as follows:
What do I do if I see someone not wearing a mask, even though they should be? Nothing. Some people have conditions or circumstances that would make wearing a cloth face covering difficult or dangerous. Just wear your mask and stay six feet away.

At this time, it is not clear who the Governor has designated to be responsible for the primary enforcement of the face covering mandate. We anticipate the Governor’s Office and/or the Wisconsin Attorney General’s office will provide clarification regarding the enforcement of the Governor’s executive order within the next few days.

Please know, during this time of uncertainty for individuals and families, we will do our best to offer the services and support our community needs. We appreciate the willingness of our citizens to comply with the order and recommendations of the various agencies overseeing this unprecedented health emergency, and for doing their part to help our community navigate through this difficult time.

Governor Evers has declared a state of emergency and issued a mask mandate effective August 1 for the entire state.

"My mask protects you, your mask protects me, and our masks work best when we both wear them together." Governor Tony Evers explains why he issued an Emergency Order requiring we all wear face coverings indoors starting August 1.

A new study shows that young, previously healthy adults can take a long time to recover from COVID-19.

A new study shows that young, previously healthy adults can take a long time to recover from COVID-19. The investigation published in CDC’s MMWR found that nearly 1 in 5 adults ages 18-34 who had milder outpatient COVID-19 and reported having no chronic medical conditions had not returned to their usual health after 14-21 days. Take steps to protect yourself and others:
• Stay 6 feet away from others not living in your household
• Wash your hands often
• Wear a cloth face covering consistently and correctly
