Face mask ordinances for the cities of Racine and Green Bay go into effect on Monday.

The City of Racine passed an ordinance on July 21, requiring residents to wear a face-covering whenever they are in public, inside and outside.

Racine police would be enforcing the ordinance, fining people, and businesses that don't follow the ordinance.

Racine's ordinance expires in 2021, but has the ability to be reviewed by the Racine Common Council in October.

Green Bay's mask ordinance requires masks to be worn in any public building in Green Bay for anyone above the age of 5 without a medical exemption, mental health condition or other disability that does not allow them to wear a mask.

The ordinance runs until the city's emergency coronavirus declaration expires on Aug. 19, after which it could be extended.
