Gill the musky

  • Practice musky distancing. Gill (the musky statue outside the chamber building) is 8 feet tall—stay at least one Gill’s length away from others when you’re in public!
  • The State of Wisconsin has an order in place requiring face masks indoors. Let’s protect each other! Thank you!
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Use hand sanitizer often.
  • Stay home if you feel sick.
  • Follow the other guidelines from Vilas County Public Health.

Tip #2: Be patient

  • Some businesses have changed their services or capacity, but they’re still working hard to keep everyone safe and healthy, so bear with them as they work through their new routines. Today’s plan may change tomorrow, so be flexible as businesses work to adapt to new information.
