Gov. Tony Evers extended on Tuesday, Sept. 22 a statewide mask mandate until Nov. 21. This as the state faces soaring coronavirus cases, particularly on college campuses. In fact, Wisconsin now ranks third in the country for new cases per capita. Just one month ago, the Badger State ranked 26th.

“We continue to learn more about this virus, but what we do know is that we are facing a new and dangerous phase of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Wisconsin,” said Gov. Evers. “We are seeing an alarming increase in cases across our state, especially on campus. We need folks to start taking this seriously, and young people especially—please stay home as much as you are able, skip heading to the bars, and wear a mask whenever you go out. We need your help to stop the spread of this virus, and we all have to do this together.”

Note:  As you patronize businesses, please be aware that hours and operations may look different than normal. You can reach out to businesses in advance to learn about their expectations, safety precautions and changes.
 
Due to a recent surge in COVID-19 cases throughout our region, it is vital that critical precautions be taken now in the interest of the health and safety of our families, neighbors and area businesses. 
 
In Wisconsin, it’s in our nature to do right by our friends and neighbors. While visiting Three Lakes or patronizing Northwoods Area businesses, please wear a mask when out in public, sanitize your hands often, keep gatherings small, maintain proper social distancing from others and aspire to be kind and understanding to all. 
 
Thank you for doing your part – We’re all in this together even from six feet apart.
