Evers Calls For Statewide Mask Mandate, Goes Into Effect August 1


It’s been put into effect in a number of cities already in the state. Now, Governor Tony Evers has made it official, calling for a statewide mask mandate that goes into effect Saturday, August 1. Evers made the announcement Thursday afternoon, issuing a new public health emergency, along with the mandate for people to wear a mask. It could put him at odds with Republican legislators who have argued masks should be optional. Effective Saturday, people age five and up are required to wear a face covering when inside or an enclosed space, other than a private residence, and around those who aren’t members of their household. Evers recommends masks outdoors when social distancing is not possible. This is a developing story and we will continue to monitor and update.

Masks do work. 33 states had masks mandates before us. Unfortunately the number of confirmed cases from people from the age of 20 - 39 is

It's not going to change anything, as people don't wear masks properly.

Why do politicians think they can tell us to wear masks when they themselves don't wear them and their rioter's don't wear them. Oh that's right, it only applies to the republicans

Sheeple wear your masks, if you don't mind being degraded. This is about control, where were the masks for the regular flu seasons?

Tony the tyrant is at it again. There are exceptions for wearing masks the legislature is one exempt from wearing them. He SITS in an air conditioned office easy for him to mandate something. Come work one a construction site with no air conditioning. Glasses fogged up cant see lower oxygen levels. Ya this makes sense. You mask nazis are nuts.

Dr. Fauci wears a mask at times, he doesn't social distance, look at him and his friends at the Nationals ball game, mask was hanging down. Its a case of do as I say, not as I do.

The virus is real. It didn’t disappear in April and will not magically disappear. We need to get it under control. Not a big fan of masks but will wear one because it is the right thing to do. The governors that are taking responsibility should be thanked for trying to slow the spread.

If they are trying to get it under control, why is Eden fire department going ahead with their picnic?

You don't have to wear a mask...you can stay home and keep it off. You are free to do so.

You are told to wear a seat-belt when you drive yet I haven't seen a single post anywhere of anyone complaining about their right to be free in their own car.

the choice is simple, put your mask on or stay home....buckle up or don't get on the road.

What is the difference between a mandate a a law?

How many have been killed in FDL County recently not wearing a seatbelt?
Several. So you could not magically force them to wear a seatbelt despite a law. Despite your "logic".
Just like you can't force me to wear a mask. Describe how you will force me to stay home.

I'm waiting....

Conform to mandate or receive penalties for not conforming, is that freedom? NO
