Wisconsin Supreme Court Decision Regarding Safer at Home

The Wisconsin Supreme Court invalidated the Safer at Home Order on May 14, 2020. This may cause much confusion among Wisconsin residents, and Forest County Potawatomi Community members.

Information from other tribal nations shows that COVID-19 affects Native Americans at a disproportionately higher rate. We ask that you please exercise caution by practicing physical distancing and good personal hygiene practices, as recommended by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Centers for Disease Control. The virus is still around us and is not going away any time soon.

We will continue adhering to Safer at Home guidance from the State Department of Health Services and CDC recommendations.

Please see the link below for the Centers for Disease Control that can assist with best practices to stop the spread of COVID-19.
