There has been a lot of movement and uncertainty regarding what is open or closed. Most areas are recommending following guidance from the state and CDC when considering what is ready to be open.
Please remember that while currently, businesses are able to be open, many will choose to cancel events, programming, and delay reopening at their own discretion with public and employee safety in mind. Cities and counties will be working to open public parks with safety and best practices in mind.
We’re all wondering about summer camps and programs, events, pools, playgrounds, and more. As always, we’ll be working to bring you information for families around Northeast Wisconsin. We’ll update this list as more information becomes available.
Social distancing practices are encouraged when in public by all of our health departments. This includes maintaining 6 feet of distance with people outside of your family, avoiding touching your face, washing your hands, and using face coverings for those 2 years and older when out to protect others.
No parks and recreation department has announced that they will be santizing the playground structures and equipment.
We encourage everyone to remember kindness and patience as our community works together to navigate these next steps in living through a pandemic.
