The Door County Public Health Department issued an Emergency Advisory Thursday afternoon strongly encouraging everyone five years old and older to mask up. The advisory is in effect starting on Friday at 8 a.m. and is for any public spaces, including businesses, health care settings and public transportation. Door County Emergency Management Director Dan Kane says the advisory is not about taking a side on the masking debate but protecting each other.
Kane says the advisory is a step below an enforceable mandate like what has already been done in the cities of Green Bay, Whitewater, Racine and Superior. Governor Tony Evers told reporters Thursday he is unlikely to issue a statewide mandate for masking due to political opposition. The advisory is in effect until further notice.
