DOOR COUNTY (NBC 26) -- Door County Public Health has issued an emergency advisory requiring everyone 5 years of age or older to wear a face covering when in public.
Door County Public Health defines a public space as “businesses of any kind (retail, grocery, restaurants, bars, gas stations, etc.) health care settings, and public transportation.”
People are also being asked to wear a mask when they’re in someone else’s household.
“We do not take this advisory lightly. Scientific evidence shows that masks play an important role in reducing the spread of COVID-19,” a news release from Door County Public Health announcing the advisory says.
The advisory takes effect 8 a.m. Friday. Read the full advisory below:
There is no statewide face mask mandate in Wisconsin, though many municipalities and counties have issued their own advisories.
