Door County Board does not strengthen mask advisory

The Door County Board of Supervisors met Tuesday with several items on the agenda, including last week’s emergency public health advisory. Dr. Jim Heise from the Door County Medical Center gave a general update on the COVID-19 situation locally and his experiences treating the disease. He spoke in favor of a masking policy at the county level. Public Health Director Sue Powers also talked, including announcing plans for more staff so that the county could properly conduct contact tracing given this month’s increase in caseload. The board did not have the option to pass an ordinance giving the advisory the force of law. Counsel Grant Thomas said he’s not sure that it would have held up in court even if it was approved.


Other items on the agenda at Tuesday’s meeting included the acceptance of a gift for $10,000 from Adopt-A-Soldier Door County to the Sheriff’s Department. The measure passed by a 16-4 vote.



Below is the complete audio from Grant Thomas' remarks to the Door County Board of Supervisors.
