Health Department on County Fair

The Fond du Lac County Fair is here, and with the delicious foods and animal shows all so close together, it’s important to remember healthy habits. 

Joyce Mann from the Fond du Lac County Health Department tells us to be mindful of where and when you eat while out at the fair. She says “even healthy animals carry germs that don’t make them sick, but could make us sick. So the key to that is not eating or drinking while you’re going through the barns and thorough washing of your hands before you eat something.”

Mann suggests feeding kids a snack before going to visit the animals – and to try keeping them from putting their hands or other things in their mouths while at the fair.
