August COVID-19 Update


On August 4, Sheboygan County Health and Human Services, in accordance with suggestions from the CDC, issued a new mask recommendation for all County-

owned and leased facilities. They strongly recommend masks be worn by all people, vaccinated or not, while inside a County facility.

As you may or may not be aware, the museum buildings are owned by Sheboygan County and the Historical Society has a lease agreement with the County. While we are not a department of the County, we do have to follow their recommendations due to our unique relationship. You can read more on the topic in the press release they issued yesterday afternoon.

While this is not what we expected, we will work through this situation as well. Our primary concern is the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers and guests. We are continuing with our normal operating hours and upcoming events and hope that the situation with the pandemic continue to not deteriorate. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow any guidelines put forth by the County Health and Human Services Department.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support of the Sheboygan County Historical Society.
