Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is ordering face masks to be worn statewide.
Under the order, which takes effect Saturday, people ages five and older are required to wear a face covering when indoors or in an enclosed space with anyone outside their household. Face coverings are also strongly recommended if people are outdoors and maintaining physical distancing is not possible.
Evers’ order is in effect until September 28th. Neighboring Minnesota put a mandatory mask order in effect last week.
