Wisconsin’s Democrat governor has implemented new coronavirus lockdown measures, signing an executive order urging residents to stay home.
On Tuesday, Governor Tony Evers said the state has now become “a national hot-spot” and stated the stay at home order is the next step to slow the spread.
Evers compared the rising COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin to New York when the Empire State hit peak case levels in the spring. He noted there are now 25,000 new cases since last Friday and the crisis is urgent.
Folks, it’s not safe to go out. It’s not safe to have others over—it’s just not safe. And it might not be for a while yet. Limit your interactions to those you live with and stay home as much as you are able. Let’s #StayHomeSaveLives, together.

“I’m concerned about what this trajectory means for healthcare workers if we don’t get this virus under control,” the Wisconsin governor said. “Each day this virus goes unchecked is a setback for our economic recovery.”
Evers added our farmers and schools will continue to suffer unless we hammer down hard on the virus.
