Features & Bulletins

MDHHS Emergency Rule

Cities of Wakefield, Ironwood, Bessemer and GOISD.

On Monday, October 5th, the MDHHS Director Robert Gordon issued an Emergency Order to restrict gathering sizes, require face coverings in public spaces, and place limitations on bars and other venues. The communities of Wakefield, Bessemer, and Ironwood with the Gogebic-Ontonagon Intermediate School District  ask our residents to follow the emergency order. Ironwood Mayor Annette Burchell stated, "With COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations increasing, now is not the time to let politics deter us from following these effective safe practices that slow COVID-19's spread.  We must all continue to do our part to protect our citizens and communities by following this Emergency Order."

The Western Michigan Public Health Department urges our residents, businesses, and visitors to continue to take precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19. Precautions include wearing a mask in public, handwashing frequently, social distance, and staying home when sick or if you have been potentially exposed to COVID-19. Mayor Adam Zak of Bessemer believes “we can respect each others views and slow the spread of COVID-19 at the same time."

Communities on the Gogebic Range are resilient and compassionate. Mayor Dale White of Wakefield stated, "Our communities look after, and take care of each other. I hope to continue to see masks being worn in our community."

"Remember that by doing your part and wearing masks and socially distancing, you are not only protecting yourself but our entire community, including our students, teachers, and their loved ones," says GOISD Superintendent Alan Tulppo.
