The City of Milwaukee has a mask ordinance in effect until March 1, 2022. The ordinance requires anyone over 3 years old to wear a face covering while inside a building open to the public, regardless of vaccination status. There are some exceptions for performers, athletes, individuals eating or drinking, and other settings where mask use is not feasible (e.g., dental exam).

The Health Department also encourages residents and visitors to get the COVID-19 vaccine


Stop the Covid Spread!

VISIT Milwaukee is proud to be part of the Stop the Covid Spread! Coalition, a group of Wisconsin’s leading health care, business, education, and advocacy organizations who have all joined in a team effort to urge the public to step up and take preventive measures seriously so that we can all continue to safely participate in Wisconsin’s economy. The coalition has grown dramatically since its launch and now includes nearly 100 Wisconsin organizations. If we all work together, we can help stop the COVID spread.
