Stay Safe For Easter
We all enjoy getting together for Easter traditions with family and friends. This time of COVID-19 presents different circumstances that will require us to change our plans just for this year.
We want to remind everyone that the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce is not a health official or government official. Our goal is to share information that is accurate and unbiased in a timely manner to the best of our ability.
As of 2:00PM on Saturday, April 11, 2020, there are now three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Kewaunee County (click here for source). Please join us as we stay safer at home so we can keep this number as low as possible.
In order to stay compliant with Governor Evers Safer at Home order issued on March 24, 2020 you cannot:
- visit friends or family who do not live with you
- have/attend parties (any number of people)
This includes holiday meals that many of us wish we could attend this Easter Sunday. Do not put the others or yourself at risk by saying that a short visit won’t do any harm. Since anyone could be carrying the virus and NOT show any symptoms, advice from many of the health professionals is to act is if you have the virus and take the measures describe here to help prevent the spread. Make phone calls and use virtual means to stay in touch.
In addition to social distancing (staying 6 feet apart even when wearing a mask) other measures you can take to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, the virus that causes the disease COVID-19:
- wash your hands frequently
- use a cloth face covering when going out in public
- stay at home as often as possible
- cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
- disinfect frequently touched surfaces
