Masks Recommended, Not Required

People in several Wisconsin counties are encouraged to put their masks back on in public indoor spaces.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services now says no fewer than eight counties have high enough coronavirus spread to take precautions.

COVID-19 cases have been ticking-upward in Wisconsin for about a month. Milwaukee County health officials say they’re seeing more people in local hospitals due to the virus.

Masks are merely recommended at this point, and not required.
