Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival


The following are recommendations for COVID-19 were posted on July 26, 2021 by Jefferson County Health Department:

Community residents are strongly urged to wear a mask in all indoor public settings, and outdoors in large crowds, regardless of vaccination status. In addition to evidence-based public health practices to reduce transmission of COVID-19, residents should get their COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Compared to an infected person who is not vaccinated, a person who is infected and also vaccinated for COVID-19 is less likely to become severely ill and less likely to infect others.

Jefferson County Health Department (JCHD) encourages community members who are not yet vaccinated to empower themselves with reliable and factual information on the benefits of getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Call 211 with any questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, or visit the Health Department’s website.

It is vital that Jefferson County takes quick action to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep our communities safe. Community members should engage in the following practices, even if they are fully vaccinated:

  • Wear a mask in high-risk settings (indoor public places, outdoors in crowded spaces, etc.)
  • Physically distance from others (6 feet) in public settings
  • Avoid crowds, poorly ventilated areas, or places where people may be sick
  • Get tested if you have symptoms, or if you have had exposure to someone with COVID-19
  • Quarantine if you are exposed to someone with COVID-19
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Wash your hands often
  • Monitor your health daily
  • Get vaccinated for COVID-19

About the Cover Artist

Valerie de Rozarieux lives in the beautiful Peak district of the UK, an area of valleys and moorland hills. She is a self-taught artist who enjoyed drawing as a child and who, since 2016 – her family having grown up – has been able to spend more time on her passion for painting. She is particularly drawn to colors and how they combine and interact with one another. “I enjoy using watercolours and exploring their fluid qualities. I love to let the pigment ‘do its own thing’ on the paper, revelling in the mixing, run back and granulations for exciting textures. I have always had a love for nature so it was only natural for these to be the subject of my paintings. I feel that the spontaneity and fluidity of watercolours lend themselves well to capturing the beauty of animals, giving a sense of life.”
