ICYMI: Last week we announced our robust $1 billion plan to box in #COVID19 across Wisconsin, focusing on testing, contact tracing, operations, and resources for local communities. #Thread
This plan includes a $260 million investment in testing efforts to ensure that everyone who needs a test, gets a test.
Hand in hand with testing, we have to ramp up contacting tracing. Our plan includes critical investments in contact tracer staff and in our local county and tribal health departments to make sure we are contacting and isolating those who have had contact with the virus quickly.
In addition to testing and tracing, we need supplies. Ventilators for those who are seriously ill and #PPE for our healthcare workers, first responders, and others so they can do their jobs safely.
And finally we have to ensure that our hospital systems and communities are prepared to handle a surge of COVID-19 patients over the summer and fall, because at this time, there is no standard treatment or vaccine for #COVID19.
We have to remember that while the Safer at Home order may have gone away, the virus itself has not. Our families, our neighbors, and our communities are still very much at risk and we will continue to do what we have to do to keep Wisconsinites healthy and safe.
