Public Health Emergency and Mask Order
On January 19, 2021, Governor Evers issued Executive Order 104, declaring a public health emergency. The governor also issued a new face coverings order, Emergency Order 1. which will expire on March 20, 2021. Both orders are effective immediately.

Symptoms of COVID-19
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. 

If you feel sick, stay home
NOTE: Not everyone with COVID-19 has all of these symptoms. For many, symptoms are mild, with no fever. You can still spread the virus to others even if you have mild or no symptoms. There are people who may be at greater risk for severe symptoms.

How to protect yourself and others
Three Important Ways to Slow the Spread:
  1. Wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19.Mask pic
  2. Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you.
  3. Avoid crowds. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
Check out the Decision Tool from the WI Dept. of Health Services to help you make safe choices and reduce the risk to yourself and others!

COVID-19 vaccines will be an important tool in controlling the pandemic. Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools we have available.
