“The best way to protect yourself and others is to stay at home as much as possible, especially if you are experiencing signs of illness, wear a fabric mask when in public, practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from other people, wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.

“According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Safer at Home was working. Please continue to follow their suggested guidelines.”
