Together We Can

KEEP OUR BUSINESSES OPEN AND OUR COMMUNITY STRONG

Together We Can build immunity in our community

Whether you have experienced loss, illness, loneliness, frustration, and/or something different, it’s safe to say that COVID-19 has had an impact on your life.

It’s also safe to say that even if we have different opinions about how to respond to the virus, we still want many of the same things for our community.

Together We Can unites Juneau County residents, businesses and organizations around the goal of reducing the negative effect COVID-19 is having locally.
We don’t have to agree on everything. We can still work together to positively impact the things we do agree are important.

To get an inside look at some of the specific ways COVID-19 could touch our community, visit the video and community partner sections of this page.

Together We Can slow the spread of COVID-19, and build immunity in our community.


Community Partners

  • Body Shop Bar & Grill

    “I hope that we can help everyone see how important it is to take responsibility for how their actions may impact the people and businesses around them. If we all do our part to take the proper precautions, my staff can remain safe, my business can stay open, and my customers can continue to count on us to be there to serve them both now and into the future.”
    -Brian Larson, Owner

  • Buckhorn Grill & Bar, Buckhorn Store, Summer Hideaway

    “COVID-19 has taken its toll on all of us. Operating three small businesses allows us to interact with our community on a daily basis. If we work together to help stop the spread of this virus, we are able to keep our doors open to continue to serve our amazing customers. We consider our staff and customers ‘family,’ and it is important to us to keep our ‘family’ safe and healthy.”
    -Tim & Erin Voll, Owners

  • City of Elroy Police Department

    “We work to serve and protect the community every single day. We are now asking the community to help protect us, by taking steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. We can’t let complacency get in the way of doing the right thing for each other.”
    -Tony Green, Chief

  • Juneau County Health Department

    “We are a resilient community, and can work together to slow the spread of COVID-19 just like we did earlier this year. Our tools may be limited, but what we do have is effective when everyone uses them properly. Now is the time for us to come together and rally around our shared goals.”
    -Amanda Dederich, Health Officer

  • Juneau County Department of Human Services

    “We work with some of the most at-risk Juneau County citizens. We need to stop the spread in order to provide children, families and vulnerable adults with the in-person services they need to be safe, healthy, productive members of our communities.”
    -Dawn Buchholz, Director

  • Lil’ Lambs Childcare Center

    “We know how important childcare is to the community. Without our services, other essential workers may not be able to serve the public. We want to do all we can to slow the spread of COVID-19 so that we can continue to remain open and able to meet the needs of the families who rely on us."
    -Shar Weibel, Director

  • Mauston Area Ambulance Association

    “We only have two ambulance crews here each day, so if the virus gets to these teams, we could be down an entire shift of emergency responders for a while. I would hope that the community would take this to heart. If each one of us does our part to wash hands on a consistent basis, wear masks out in public, and do the social distancing, we will get through this together.”
    -Chris Leopold, Director

  • Mile Bluff Medical Center

    “While wearing a mask and social distancing may seem inconvenient, they are necessary for slowing the spread of COVID-19 and keeping our economy strong. It’s up to us to take these safety measures seriously, because we can’t afford to shut down our community again.”
    -James O’Keefe, President/CEO

  • Necedah Area School District

    “When illness spreads as quickly as it is right now, we have to think about others. In order to keep school doors open, we need to work together to keep our staff and kids safe. I urge everyone to embrace this sense of responsibility over a sense of fear.”
    -Tanya Kotlowski, District Administrator
