Dane County mask order

"Bonus: It's the law" reads a sign in the door of MadCat Pet Supplies on Monroe Street that updates an older sign encouraging mask use.

United Way of Dane County is responding to the county’s order requiring face coverings in public by distributing personal protective equipment (PPE) to the community.
