Pursuant to Wis. Stat. §252.03(1), the Vilas County Public Health Official hereby declares that a Public Health Emergency exists in Vilas County. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the national spread of the COVID-19 virus, Vilas County Government must issue the following inter-county Travel Advisory.

1. Due to high community transmission in certain areas of the State, Vilas County is recommending that you stay in your home area if you have a seasonal or second home in Vilas County. Due to our very limited healthcare infrastructure, please do not visit us now.

2. People who have seasonal homes in Vilas County, please stay at your winter homes at this time. If you are already back in Vilas County, you must immediately self-isolate for 14-days.

3. Vilas County has one of the highest populations of older adults in the State of Wisconsin. This population is at the highest risk of COVID-19; it is our priority to keep our older residents healthy and safe.

4. The Vilas County Board will soon adopt a countywide COVID-19 Emergency Declaration. Please be aware that additional health and travel restrictions may be imposed at that time.
