[ARCHIVED] Face Coverings in Village Buildings

Mask Up Shorewood

The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) came out with a recommendation on July 27 stating fully vaccinated people shall also wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission due to the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant. Milwaukee County is currently rated a substantial level of transmission.

Both the Wisconsin Department of Health Services as well as our North Shore Health Department support the CDC's recommendation for mask coverings for those vaccinated. As a result, the Village will be requesting all community members to wear a face covering when entering a Village-owned building starting Monday, August 2. The Library Board will be considering their COVID-19 policy regarding mask requirements at the library at a special meeting on Saturday, July 31. More details can be found on their website.

Please note this request is only for Village-owned buildings. The Village asks community members and business owners to consider the CDC recommendation for their spaces at this time. Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep those around you safe.
