    • Inspecting all hand soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers, hand sanitizer dispensers and hand dryers to ensure they are operating properly.

    • Providing signage in county bathrooms and at entrances with information about hygiene expectations in Waukesha County facilities.

    Waukesha County recommends that local groups and individuals follow the CDC’s guidance in order to maintain the health and safety of the population.
