The order (Executive Order #1) that Gov. Tony Evers signed on Thursday, February 4, 2021, has been repealed by the WI Supreme Court on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. 

However, we released a press release today, Thursday, April 1, 2021, asking residents to still wear masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

4-1-21 OT of MM2 - Copy

Wash your cloth face covering frequently, ideally after each use, or at least daily. Have a bag or bin to keep cloth face coverings in until they can be laundered with detergent and hot water and dried on a hot cycle. If you must re-wear your cloth face covering before washing, wash your hands immediately after putting it back on and avoid touching your face.  Resource:
