JUST RECEIVED FROM THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE

Protecting the health and safety of Wisconsinites across our state is the Governor’s top priority. As we work with public health experts to respond to the health crisis, we have been careful to listen to the science and mindful of the impact our protective measures will have for EVERYONE.

Today the Governor issued Emergency Order #12 to institute a Safer At Home policy. Please read the order carefully! [attached]

The order is effective at 8:00 am on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 and remain in effect until 8:00 am Friday, April 24, 2020, or until a superseding order is issued.

Wisconsin residents must comply with this order. As outlined in the order, individuals can leave their home to perform tasks essential to maintain health and safety, get services and supplies necessary for staying home, and care for others.

After reviewing the order, if a business believes their business is doing essential work and they are not exempted in this order please go to this link https://wedc.org/essentialbusiness/.

These are important steps to ensure we working to slow the spread of COVID-19, and we all need to do our part and work together to protect each other. The Governor did not take this decision lightly, but we know what Wisconsinites can do when they care about each other.

Essential services will continue to be provided to our communities. We ask that you recognize the efforts of those who are providing those services.
