Mask mandate enforcement uncertain

The issue of locally enforcing the indoor mask mandate set down by Governor Tony Evers has been clarified in statements by Door and Kewaunee County law enforcement officials.  Sheriff Tammy Sternard,  Sturgeon Bay Police Chief Arleigh Porter, and District Attorney Colleen Nordin along with Attorney Jon Pinkert released a joint statement Friday stating that Door County Law Enforcement does not have the personnel available to respond to complaints of individuals specifically violating the Governor's mandate.  Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski also noted limited resources that prevent the ability to respond to each and every complaint of an individual not wearing a mask.  The Governor's mandate does not specifically designate who is responsible for the primary enforcement of the face-covering mandate.  Those details are expected to be released in the next few days.  Wisconsin Senate Republicans have stated that they are standing ready to reconvene the Senate to end the Governor's new order.   You can read the informational releases by both Door and Kewaunee County sheriff's departments below.
