County issues coronavirus-related advisory to seasonal residents

Oneida County officials issued a new advisory Friday requesting that seasonal and second homeowners not travel to Oneida County.

Due to the public health emergency created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Oneida County government has issued an inter-county travel advisory, county officials said in a press release.

The advisory includes the following:

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

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

3. Oneida 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 Oneida County Board adopted a countywide COVID-19 Emergency Declaration. Please be aware that additional health and travel restrictions may be imposed in the future.

5. This is an everchanging and very serious health situation, and Oneida County needs to be diligent in its response.

For the most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19, follow Oneida County Public Health's website: https://publichealth.co.oneida.wi.us.

Vilas County officials have also issued an advisory requesting that seasonal visitors and second homeowners refrain from visiting the county at this time.
