Folks in and around Madison shouldn’t leave the house without a face mask. Madison and Dane County’s face mask requirement takes effect today.
Pretty much everyone will be required to wear a mask almost everywhere they go. There is a 376 dollar fine for people who refuse to wear a mask, but it’s not clear just how strictly that fine will be enforced.
Local businesses say about 90 percent of people in Madison already wear masks, so the new requirement will not be that much of an adjustment.
