Powers explains mask advisory decision

Door County Public Health Manager Sue Powers hopes a strong message was sent Thursday afternoon when her department issued an emergency advisory regarding masking. It went into effect Friday morning stipulating that anyone five years and older should wear a face covering in public. Even though it cannot be enforced like a mandate would be, Powers hopes by issuing an advisory that it can stem the recent surge.

As of right now, there is no expiration date for the advisory and Powers says she would have to see a real decline in cases before removing it. Ashland, Bayfield, and Iron Counties issued similar mask advisories last week.
