Evers Considers New Statewide Mask/Health Orders

As county and local governments start to issue their own mask and health orders, Governor Tony Evers says it might take some time to do so statewide. Evers says his Administration is exploring options to do so legally.

“Unfortunately the reality is that the Supreme Court ruling in the Republican lawsuit really hamstrung our ability to respond to this pandemic.”

Evers is calling on people, especially young people, to voluntarily take part in wearing masks, as the number of COVID-19 cases for people in their 20s continues to rise.
