The Marinette County Fair is currently scheduled to take place in Wausaukee, Wisconsin from August 27, 2020 through August 30th, 2020 despite the Executive Order #82 passed by Governor Evers on July 30th, 2020. 

According to the 2020 census, there are 17,893 individuals over the age of 50 residing in Marinette County. This is 43.9% of the total population of Marinette County. Statistics show us that these people are potentially at a higher risk for contracting COVID-19, which could also be related to a higher fatality rate. 

The Marinette County Fair relies on the revenue generated from residents and nonresidents. This unnecessary socialization could cause irreparable damage to both the population and economy of the community. 

Although most of the fair activities are held outdoors, there is still a great propensity for the virus to spread. Large crowds, local shopping, utilization of community resources (i.e. gas stations, banks, bars, churches, grocery stores, public restrooms), etc., introduce conditions in which this virus thrives. 

The risk to the community is greater than the benefit of the revenue brought in from hosting the fair.
