Mask Mandate Debate Rages On Politically

Wisconsin‘s mask mandate has been in effect since Saturday, but the debate rages on. Republican State Senator Chris Kapenga tells WKOW-TV’S Capitol City Sunday that there’s no need for a mask mandate, because Wisconsin’s hospitals can handle new coronavirus cases. Democratic State Senator Chris Larson said the mask order is necessary to try and slow down the spread. Larson says his own informal poll shows plenty of support for a mask order.
