FLORENCE, Wis. (WLUC) - The Florence County Sheriff’s Office says it won’t be enforcing Wisconsin’s face mask mandate when it takes effect Saturday.

In a Facebook post Thursday night, Sheriff Dan Miller said his office is not the mask police.

Wear a mask if you want, if you don’t want to, that is fine also. The Sheriff’s Office is not the mask police. We will be out looking for real criminals. Sheriff Dan.
