Could Fond du Lac County Be Next For Face Mask Mandate?

When it comes to mask mandates, Fond du Lac is slowly becoming an island unto itself. Green Bay’s mask mandate went into effect this week, Oshkosh is considering a mask mandate, and now Appleton’s mayor has issued a proclamation, urging residents to wear face coverings in public, when social distancing can’t be maintained. There has been discussion regarding the Appleton Common Council taking up conversation that would lead to mandatory masks in Appleton, but so far those talks have not been had. Fond du Lac County Executive Allen Buechel said recently he didn’t think a mask mandate would happen, but only time, and numbers, will tell if that stance holds firm.
