VILLAGE OF SISTER BAY – COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) INFORMATION
The Village of Sister Bay has declared a Health Emergency regarding the spread of COVID-19. Village officials are working diligently to assist the state in preventing the spread of Coronavirus. We ask that the public practice “social distancing” in an effort to prevent the spread.
The Village Administration building will be closed to the public until further notice. Please visit the Village of Sister Bay Website and select the “contact us” tab to reach a Village official. We likely can complete your request or transaction without in-person interactions.
For utility payments, please use xPress Bill Pay or through EFT transfer.

All Village meetings will now be conducted virtually. Hyperlinks to the virtual platform we are utilizing will be listed on the Agendas which are posted on this website.
VILLAGE BUILDING CLOSURES:
The Village Administration building is closed until further notice. Village staff will remain working, either at the Village Administration building or remotely. You can contact Village officials at 920-854-4118. Face-to-face meetings are discouraged.
The Library will be closed per County orders indefinitely. The Village Hall and the Fire Station will also be closed to the public at this time.
GENERAL HEALTH INFO:
Prevent the spread – wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, cover your coughs and sneezes, and stay home when you are ill. The recommendation of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services is if you have traveled to a country with a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for COVID-19, you will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days after returning to Wisconsin. If you have a fever, cough and shortness of breath, seek medical attention and stay home. This means do not go to school, work, enter public buildings, or attend large gatherings. Please see the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website for more details on self-quarantining: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/index.htm.
We realize that not everyone can do everything. But we have to try our absolute best as a community, starting today. Enhancing social distancing, even by one day, can make a huge difference.
We have a preemptive opportunity to save lives through the actions we take right now. It is a public health imperative. It is also our responsibility as a community to act while we still have a choice and while our actions can have the greatest impact.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
