04/06/2020- There are no formal travel restrictions in place for Marinette County, but seasonal residents are being asked to consider limiting their visits to the area and to exercise the same isolation practices that are mandated statewide if they do. It’s the time of year when people who own secondary homes in the County are itching to get out and check on their properties, but health officials warn that increases the risk of community to community spread of the coronavirus. Highway Commissioner and Administrator of Emergency Management Eric Burmeister says if you are visiting, don’t expect a typical trip up north.
If visitors need to head out and get food and supplies for their cabin, they should adhere to six-foot social distancing guidelines, but Burmeister encourages them to come prepared instead to avoid putting additional unnecessary burden on local resources.
Everyone- whether a resident or visitor- is reminded to continue to practice good hygiene habits to lessen the likelihood they contract or spread COVID-19. That includes washing or sanitizing hands thoroughly and often, cleaning commonly touched surfaces, and avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
