They will not be measuring up square footage or person counting, but the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department hopes the community works together to help lower the coronavirus caseload in the area. Earlier this week, Governor Tony Evers issued a public health order to limit indoor gatherings to 25 percent or less. The order affects stores, restaurants, and other businesses that allow public entry as well as ticketed events. Like some of the past orders issued this year related to the coronavirus, Sheriff Matt Joski says his department does not have the resources to answer to every single call. He was encouraged by local businesses being proactive even before the order came down by switching to carry-out or removing tables to encourage social distancing when numbers started to climb. Joski adds the department would be forced to intervene in certain cases.
He hopes the community works together to keep each other physically safe while also striking a balance with people’s emotional, mental, and spiritual needs.
