As a reminder community spread of COVID-19 continues to occur in our region and throughout the state. This means people have been infected with the virus in our area, including some who are not sure how or where they were infected.

The best way to protect yourself and others is to stay at home as much as possible especially ifyou are experiencing signs of illness, wear a fabric face covering when in public, practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from other people, wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and to clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Safer at Home was working. Please continue to follow their suggested guidelines.
