Public Notice: St. Croix County Updates Mask Advisory 08.06.21

We just issued a press release announcing that St. Croix County Public Health has updated and extended their Mask Advisory until October 5, 2021. 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
    • In public indoor settings when the level of community transmission in St. Croix County is at a “substantial” or “high” level.
    • At local businesses and workplaces which ask individuals to mask.
    • In healthcare settings.
    • In K-12 schools (students, staff, and visitors).
    • 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.

St. Croix County Public Health has updated our COVID-19 Dashboard to reflect this new guidance. The dashboard shows the current level of COVID-19 transmission (low, moderate, substantial, and high) in St. Croix County and the steps that should be taken at each level to keep everyone safe. The level of transmission will be updated once per week based on the current level of community transmission.

River Island Deck Replaced- Thank you to Star Prairie Fish & Game!

Attached are photos from the River Island Park project. Photo credit: Dan Scheeringa

The tear off was completed by Craig Matthys, Tom Johnson and myself (Dan Scheeringa). 

Star Prairie Fish and Game members completed the installation.

SPF&G members involved were: Erv Ericksen, Diz Madsen, John Peterson, Chuck Magoon, Bill Jasperson, Chuck Frawley

In the group photos, the SPF&G members are (l to r) Diz Madsen, Chuck Magoon, John Peterson and Erv Ericksen. 

The project was completed using a grant from Star Prairie Fish and Game to purchase materials. The village was able to procure materials for $200 less than the maximum of the $1835 grant request, and have enough left over lumber to replace decking on a couple of the fishing docks along the Apple River in the park next spring. 

Village employees Amanda Engesether, Nathan Licht and Martin Schwan were instrumental in the logistics helping get this project moving

Big thanks to all volunteers!
