Wisconsin Mask Mandate Effective Aug. 1
Governor Tony Evers announced a statewide order requiring Wisconsinites to wear masks beginning Saturday, Aug. 1.
Emergency Order #1 requires Wisconsin residents ages five and older to wear a face covering when they are indoors or in an enclosed space with anyone outside their household or living unit. Face coverings are strongly recommended if you are outdoors and maintaining physical distancing is not possible.
An exception to the order is when necessary to confirm an individual’s identity, including when entering a financial institution. When entering Fortifi Bank, you may be asked to remove your mask temporarily for proper identification.
The order also enumerates exceptions to the requirement, listing activities such as when an individual is eating, drinking, or swimming. Individuals with health conditions or disabilities that would preclude the wearing of a face covering safely are also exempt from the requirement.
