Governors Call for More Coronavirus Restrictions
More than a third of the governors across the U.S., including Gov. Tony Evers of Wisconsin and Gov. Mike DeWine of Ohio, have issued public appeals for people to take coronavirus prevention measures seriously.
“Each day this virus goes unchecked, it’s a setback for our economic recovery. Our bars, restaurants, small businesses families and farmers will continue to suffer if we don’t take action right now. Our economy cannot bounce back until we contain this virus. So tonight I’ve signed Executive Order 94, advising Wisconsinites to stay home to save lives. We must get back to the basics of fighting this virus just like we did last spring. And it starts at home. 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 safe for a while yet. So please, please cancel the happy hours, the dinner parties, sleepovers, play dates at your home.” “We know that masks work. They are the easiest, most cost-effective way to limit the spread of Covid-19. Every retail employee has the right to work in an environment that is as safe as can be. Which means all customers must wear masks. Our mask order was issued on July 23, and in fact, says just that.”
