The Ashland Daily Press has reported that all municipal buildings in the Town of La Pointe, Wisconsin were officially closed yesterday until further notice, presumably because of concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
The closing will be in effect until further notice. Meetings in municipal buildings are canceled, except for those scheduled by appointment.
Numerous similar closings are being reported along the south shore/Apostle Islands region, from Ashland and Odanah to Madeline Island, Washburn and Bayfield. The Red Cliff Tribe of Lake Superior Chippewa closed its "Legendary Waters" Casino today, following a similar move by the Bad River Tribe at their own casino. The casino closings are expected to continue for at least two to three weeks.
