FDL County Health Department Supports Mask Mandate, Says Call Them For Non-Compliance


Governor Tony Evers is issuing a statewide mask order to take effect on Saturday. Evers says that the order is part of a reissuance of a public health emergency because of a second wave of COVID-19 infections. Following the release of the statewide mask mandate, Fond du Lac County Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt issued a statement, saying his staff would not be enforcing the mask mandate. Waldschmidt said there were many reasons for it, including not having the needed resources nor the time to respond to the complaints.

Now, the FDL County Health Department has said to contact them, for any instances of non-compliance. Public Health Officer Kim Mueller making that announcement Friday morning. Mueller was joined in the Facebook Live video conference by Fond du Lac County Executive Allen Buechel, who said he agrees with Governor Evers on the mask mandate, saying "We have a crisis like none of us has seen before. And it's not getting better on its own. Which is why Governor Evers had to take some measure. And I support his taking the measure. It's the right thing to do." Buechel is asking residents to wear the mask, "so we don't have to worry about enforcing the wearing of masks or not. We'd much rather have you do the right thing and comply."

County Executive agrees with the mask mandate and that we are in a crisis... Yet 2 weeks ago he said "Buechel also defends the Fair Board’s decision to hold the County Fair last week despite recommendations from the Health Department against doing so." “We have to be willing to take some risks. It is not going away any time soon and what I’m counting on is a vaccine.”

What about the 1918 flu? That was a crisis. Hurricanes/natural disasters are worse. What about Sept 11th 2001? Now that was a crisis! Media makes everything bigger than life.

There is a picture at the Harley Museum from January 1919 and everyone in it is wearing a mask. They knew enough to try to make things better back then and i bet they didn't cry about it either.

What about the other states that have also required masks only to see their covid-19 infection totals climb?

Used masks that are improperly disposed of only help to spread more disease.

No response is better than an ineffective response!

Why are people wearing masks in cars when alone?

Public Health press release makes more sense than the Sheriff. Things are changing with the numbers. Economically in the long run masks make sense. Don't want to go back to businesses being shut down. Will wear the mask despite not being a big fan of them.

Health Department is not a legal entity so how is it that they are going to enforce non compliance. There are medical conditions out there that do not allow for mask wearing. Is anyone taking that into consideration before they decide to be the city Nark. Unbelievable.
stupid mask mandate commented on 31-Jul-2020 03:32 PM3 out of 5 stars
Masks aren't totally effective

Yes, let's call for the de-funding of police departments across the country, and then complain when they won't enforce this stupid mandate.

and that should be all the reason anybody needs to wear one!

It’s a mother’s right to choose after all it’s her body. To mask or not to mask.

FDL County Sheriff - To Serve and Protect....but only if it aligns with our political viewpoint. How pathetic.

LOL Scared Mom! The science tells us that masks are of no use. The CDC said masks won't help. Of course, then they changed their mind and said to wear one. Dr. Fauci said they didn't help. Then he changed his mind and said they did. But then, we see him at a baseball game, and he wasn't wearing one nor social distancing. The New England Journal of Medicine reported that the only thing a mask helps is with anxiety. People wear one because they are scared of a disease and THINK a mask helps them, so they are less anxious. Countries all over the world that just let the virus run it's course are now re-open, with life as normal. In the past the US would have done the same, and we would be back to normal life now. Don't believe me? FACT CHECK EVERY POINT I'VE MADE. You will find I speak the truth.

We the people, you are so right, done that. Fear tactics. What are people afraid of? Dr. Fauci/CDC they cause fear and cause confusion

They lie to you daily - top scientists are being silenced (Yale Professor Dr. Harvey A. Risch), while others are being murdered. (Dr. Bing Liu) Actual truth is being perverted and our freedoms stolen as we are encouraged to call the police on our neighbors. Can't you see where this is going?
