Chippewa County Addresses False Information Circulating Regarding COVID-19 Ordinance

It has come to the attention of the Chippewa County Department of Public Health that misinformation is being spread about a COVID-19 ordinance. The text message indicates that counties will be receiving $250,000 from Governor Evers to shut down again. It mentions call-in information for a meeting and that the information is coming from Angela Weideman, the Health Officer/Director for Chippewa County Department of Public Health.

That information is false: There is no money coming from Governor Evers to shut down the county again. If you receive this text message, please disregard.
