The COVID-19 situation is rapidly changing. It is important to get your information from trustworthy sources. We recommend:
For Business Guidance and Recommendations we recommend visiting WEDC for reopening guidance: https://wedc.org/reopen-guidelines/
The La Crosse County Health Department recommends that all people wear a mask when in public. This includes while at work in essential roles like retail or manufacturing. Wearing a mask protects people who may not know they are sick from spreading the disease. Cotton fabric masks or scarves can be used as a face covering. Cotton is more effective than other fabrics. After each use, wash in hot water.

**If you have masks to donate, you can take them directly to Great Rivers United Way office in Onalaska from 7am-3pm. These will be distributed to members of our community who may not be able to make their own, as well as employees in essential roles and those providing services face to face.**
If you are in need of a mask, please contact Julie Nelson @ email@example.com or by phone at 608-796-1400.
