St. Croix County Public Health has modified its mask advisory to reflect new CDC guidelines, according to a news release. 

The new guidelines state fully vaccinated people can resume activities, indoor or outdoor, without a mask or physically distancing. A person is fully vaccinated if it has been more than two weeks since the final dose of a vaccination series. 

Public Health continues to recommend masks for those not fully vaccinated. It encourages those who have not been vaccinated to do so at a location convenient to them. 

Masks act as a simple barrier that help prevent your respiratory droplets from reaching others. Droplets that can spread the virus are released when a person breathes, talks, coughs or sneezes. 

Under the Mask  Advisory, Public Health recommends every individual, age five and older, in St. Croix County wear a face mask if the following apply:  

  • The individual is not fully vaccinated or  
  • The individual is fully vaccinated and is 
    • At local businesses and workplaces which ask individuals to mask.
    • In healthcare settings. 
    • In K-12 schools. 
    • At a place where masks are required by local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations.  
    • If they are residents or employees in a correctional or detention facility, jail or homeless  shelter.
