A few weeks ago, we had a pretty grim outlook for what COVID-19 could mean for our state, but safer at home is working, folks. Our data shows we have saved lives and we have helped flatten the curve, which has resulted in fewer cases and hospitalizations. #THREAD
But as I’ve said all along, we are going to rely on the science and public health experts to help guide us through these challenges, because at the end of the day, our bottom line is keeping people safe. And we’re not out of the woods just yet.
That’s why we are extending Wisconsin’s Safer at Home order to May 26, 2020 with some new measures to ensure safety and support the progress we’ve made, but also allow certain activities to resume. More on that is available at the FAQ document here:
I know a lot of folks are concerned about the effects this will have on workers and businesses across our state—and believe me, no one wants to reopen our economy as much as I do.
But we can’t think of this like flipping a light switch. It’s like turning a dial and the more disciplined we are now, the faster we can turn it in the future.
We know what we need to do to move forward. Our team at the State Emergency Operations Center has been hard at work developing a plan that will allow us to safely reopen our economy.
We also have been talking with business leaders, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders about next steps because we recognize we must work together to safely reopen so hardworking people can get back to work and businesses can get back on their feet.
At the end of the day, we have to remember that we’re all in this together, folks. While we may not all be in the same boat, we are all weathering the same storm. Thank you all for the work you’ve been doing by staying safer at home.
