Real Racine is passionate about sharing Racine County as a prime destination in Southeastern Wisconsin. We are striving to advocate on behalf of our region and spread positivity during this trying time. The health and wellness of our local community are paramount, and the Real Racine team is monitoring local, state and national guidance.
Effective September 4, 2021, the City of Racine is requiring masks to be worn in all indoor spaces to protect the health of the public as COVID-19 transmissions have increased.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask in public indoor settings. According to the CDC, COVID-19 cases are increasing throughout the United States and the Delta variant is highly contagious. COVID-19 vaccines offer strong protection against serious illness and death. High vaccination coverage is proven to reduce the spread of the virus. The less a virus spreads, the less opportunity there is for new variants to emerge.
The Central Racine County Health Department (CRCHD) also recommends everyone wear a mask in public indoor settings regardless of vaccine status as the CRCHD jurisdiction is in the "high risk" category.
For the well-being and health of our community, the Real Racine Visitor Center has FREE masks available while you visit Racine County (limit one per guest). When entering the Visitor Center, though, masks are encouraged for everyone and mandatory for those not vaccinated. We are open daily 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
We are so proud to call Racine County home and will continue to be the light in our community during this uncertain time. Please be safe and mindful of posted restrictions.
