With the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Eau Claire County, local partners representing business, education, healthcare, and government are jointly
urging the Eau Claire community to wear a mask while in public. These same agencies have been collaborating for months on the local response to COVID-19 through testing, providing PPE, and long-term planning for local economic recovery.
“We’re so fortunate to have excellent partnership in this community across these different sectors,” said Lieske Giese, Eau Claire City-County Health Department Director. “We are all concerned about the recent rise in cases and hospitalizations locally and want our community to understand the importance of wearing masks in public.”
