Gov. Evers: Masks no longer required in state buildings beginning June 1

Coronavirus

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — New guidance from Gov. Tony Evers’ administration says people vaccinated for COVID-19 will no longer be required to wear masks in the state Capitol and most other state facilities beginning on June 1.

The updated guidance for state government follows advice from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that those who are fully vaccinated can go without masks and can forgo social distancing for most indoor and outdoor activities.

The new state recommendations say all unvaccinated individuals, including both state employees and members of the public, should continue to wear face coverings while in state facilities.

On Thursday, Kroger’s stores announced that fully vaccinated people will not be required to wear a mask into the store, switching from their original stance.

The mask rules will remain in place air travel until mid-September.
