• 7/13/2020: Milwaukee Common Council and the Mayor have implemented a mask mandate which requires anyone in the city who is at least 3 years old to have a face covering when they leave home and to wear that mask whenever they’re in a building that is open to the public and when they are outside in a public space and within six feet of any other person who is not their household or family member.
