On the day Public Health Madison and Dane County’s Emergency Order #10 goes into effect, the City is reminding residents of the importance of face masks and social distancing.

MONONA, Wis. – Today the City of Monona released a promotional video reminding residents, “we’re all in this together,” when it comes to combating COVID-19. With positive cases spreading exponentially throughout Wisconsin, the City wants to remind residents that we all have to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

This message comes as Public Health Madison and Dane County implement a new order prohibiting indoor gatherings.“A number of residents have expressed concerns over community members holding large gatherings at their homes and not wearing face masks,” said City of Monona Mayor Mary O’Connor. “We want to remind residents that the only way we can help slow the spread of COVID-19 is by following Public Health guidelines and we all have to do it together if we want it to work.”

The promotional video features 16 different community members including: Mayor Mary O’Connor, Monona Police Community Resource Officer Nate Reynolds, Alder Kristie Goforth, Municipal Clerk Toya Harrell and other Monona residents. Together they deliver a message that defines what “we’re in this together” means for the community. Those featured in the video all wear face masks and were recorded individually, as a way to subtly encourage the viewer to social distance and wear a face mask.
