Local Government Consider Mask Mandates in Wake of Court Ruling

With local officials all over the state on the ballot next week, I would demand a definitive position from them before giving them your vote.

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Officials in the Wood County area have no immediate plans to impose a local mask mandate.


Wood County Health Director Sue Kunferman said her office does not plan to issue a local emergency order requiring face coverings after the Wisconsin Supreme Court ended Gov. Tony Evers’s statewide mask mandate on Wednesday. The court’s conservative majority ruled 4-3 to block the governor from issuing further emergency orders on masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The ruling requires Evers to seek approval from state Legislature on future mandates.


The court’s action does not prevent local governments from pursuing their own local health emergency orders.

    Village President of Kewaskum: No mask mandate. (Also unopposed, despite several “Karen’s” demanding I be smeared with tar and feathers in public square over my “Open with reasonable caution stance” on everything last summer.)
