Masks mandates popping up locally

A week after the Door County Board chose not to pursue an ordinance requiring masks to be worn, several area locations of national chains have instituted their own mandates. Target, Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree, Walgreens, CVS, and Starbucks are among the growing list of big companies with local ties requiring face coverings beginning as soon as Monday. Door County Medical Center is working with local government leaders about possibly instituting a mandatory mask ordinance down the road despite last week’s vote. Understanding the issues municipalities have with potential litigation and enforcement of mandatory masking, Door County Medical Center President and CEO Brian Stephens says the practice is proving to be an effective way to control the spread.

Family Dollar, which has a location in Luxemburg, is also among the 20 national retailers with mask mandates according to the USA Today. Several local businesses like Baileys 57, the offices of, and Door County Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore also have rules requiring masks inside their buildings.
