If you’re concerned about someone wearing a mask in a public place, don’t call the La Crosse County Sheriff’s Office.
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers issued a mask mandate that will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Saturday.
County sheriff Jeff Wolf said that they are “extremely busy with traffic crashes, domestic disturbances, drug investigations, overdoses, and mentally ill individuals over the past several months,” on the office’s Facebook page.
Wolf said they’ll focus on investigations and that the sheriff’s office will “not be devoting time and resources to civil complaints regarding the public health order concerning masks.”
Wolf went on to say he’s confident they also won’t have to, but don’t “overwhelm” 911 with mask complaints. He says he’s confident citizens of La Crosse County will keep the communities safe.
