8-1-20 mask mandate-marshfield medical center beaver dam statement

Local health departments are working tirelessly to keep our communities safe. Businesses, event organizers,
churches, sports clubs, schools and other organizations should work closely with their health departments
and operate with the highest degree of safety in mind for all those who visit their places of business and
participate in events and activities.
Marshfield Clinic Health System, Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam and the below signed Medical Staff
and Advanced Practice Clinicians strongly support mandated use of masks such as cloth masks and surgical
facemasks in social and community settings to control the spread of COVID-19, as well as social distancing
through reduced crowd sizes. These are proven steps to decrease exposure. It’s the responsibility of all to
make responsible choices that not only protect us, but help keep our friends and neighbors safe who are at
higher risk of COVID-19, as well as keep our schools and businesses open and functioning.
We are learning more and more every day about this virus, and we are far from being clear of danger. Public
health needs to be a priority. We thank the Governor for his actions to protect the health and safety of our
communities and we stand with public health officials in their educational efforts around these basic and
essential measures.
