Evers Extends “Safer At Home” Until May 26

The “Safer At Home” order has been extended until May 26th. That announcement was made by Governor Tony Evers Thursday, and extends the restrictions Evers put in place that were set to expire April 24. That means the thousands of students already staying at home, will be home almost 3 full months once the order is lifted. 

While many are asking the Governor to lift the restrictions, health officials across the state are applauding the Governor, saying the “Safer At Home” order has resulted in fewer cases of COVID-19, with fewer hospitalizations and far fewer deaths than were expected when the virus broke out in the state. Evers said “the order is working. But we aren’t out of the woods yet.” 

So all we can say is, keep your distance, don’t make unnecessary trips, and let’s gear up for May 26, which should be one of the most glorious Tuesday celebrations we’ve seen in the state in some time.
