The following is Gov. Tony Evers’ radio address encouraging Wisconsinites to stay safer at home.
Hi, folks. Governor Tony Evers here.
Safer at Home is working and I want to thank you for everything you’ve been doing to help us flatten the curve and save hundreds of lives in our state.
While lawsuits and political posturing drag on, it is important to remember that when it comes to COVID-19 we are not out of the woods just yet.
We still need to listen to science and public health experts, and Safer at Home remains our best and most effective tool in this fight while we’re waiting for a vaccine.
Now, folks, believe me, I know this isn’t easy. I know folks are making sacrifices, and we all want to get back to some sort of normal, but this virus has killed more than 350 of our family members, friends, and neighbors and thousands more across our state are sick.
Without preventative measures like Safer at Home, we could see further outbreaks in our communities, landing us right back where we started and slowing down the process we’ve made these past months.
Deadly viruses don’t stop at county lines, they don’t wait for bureaucrats and politicians to work out their differences, and they certainly don’t go away on their own.
We need you to continue doing your part to help keep our families, our neighbors, and our communities safe.
Let’s get through this together by staying safe, staying healthy, and staying home.
