WI Mask Mandate Announced by Gov. Evers Administration
July 30, 2020
Today Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers announced a statewide mask mandate that takes effect on Saturday, August 1, 2020. This mandate applies to all hotel and lodging facilities throughout the state, and the administration has stated that the cause of the order is the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin.
The main component of the order as it relates to the lodging community states:
FACE COVERING REQUIRED. Every individual, age five and older, in Wisconsin shall wear a face covering if both of the following apply:
a. The individual is indoors or in an enclosed space, other than at a private residence; and;
b. Another person or persons who are not members of individual’s household or living unit are present in the same room or enclosed space.
Other key takeaways from the order:
• It is in effect for 60 days
• Noncompliance carries penalties of up to $200.
• The statewide order supersedes any local order that is “less restrictive”.
We just have to wait a little longer. But we are all in this together. Governor Evers has extended the “Safer at Home” policy until 5/26/20 and Glidden Lodge Beach Resort is following the order for the health and well-being of both our staff and our guests. We are looking forward to a time when we will be welcoming guests and answering questions as well as catching up with our returning visitors. We look forward to seeing you soon. We will be ready with newly deep cleaned rooms, extra precautions for sanitization, as well as new triple sheeting for the benefits of cleanliness and less germs. We want your stay with us to be carefree and enjoyable and we are striving to make that happen as soon as we can. We are awaiting your arrival!

Glidden Lodge Beach Resort puts a high priority on the health and wellness of all our guests. We are all trying to navigate through unchartered territory as world events change by the hour. We understand the growing concern with COVID-19 from events unfolding around the globe.
As stated on the Destination Door County website:
“There have been no cases reported in Door County, and according to the Door County Public Health Department the current risk of exposure to COVID-19 in Door County remains low.
It is important today, as always, to travel smart. Protecting the health of Door County residents and visitors is always a top priority. Some tips from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services that can be done to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses include:
- Frequent hand washing
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Cover your coughs and sneezes
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces”
We remain confident in our ability to provide a secure, healthy, and sanitary environment for travelers to be able to get away and still be safe by implementing the following:
1. We will continue to maintain a clean and safe environment and continue to comply with OSHA and CDC infection
- We have standard protocols in place to disinfect all surfaces for guests’ health and safety.
- We have reviewed the procedures for proper hand hygiene and reinforced their importance.
- We have expanded and increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfection of all common areas,
guest rooms, guest key cards, as well as lobby menus.
2. We support a healthy work environment for our employees.
- We have requested our staff to stay at home if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms.
- We have additional hand sanitizer, disinfectant, and gloves available for staff to reduce the spread
3. We recommend any guest stay home if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
If you’re feeling sick, or if you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive with
COVID-19, please cancel your reservations and we can either reschedule your dates or we will
refund your deposit to a gift certificate.
We are monitoring any and all updates nationally from the Centers for Disease Control, also globally from the World Health Organization, and more locally from Wisconsin Department of Health and the Door County Public Health officials. We will keep you informed of any changes that need to be made due to future developments.
