COVID-19 Update

Dear Neighbor,

In order to support your families being able to take a deep breath, turn away from constant news updates, and create a new temporary normal, my office will continue posting a near-daily update on the COVID-19 public health emergency to our website and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It is my hope that one reliable update each day will allow you to take a deep breath, oversee all that is happening in your own life and home, and have a reliable source of news you can count on to be up to date and accurate. As always, previous updates are on our website and linked beneath the graphic below. 

My greatest concerns right now are your lives and livelihoods. We are working hard to keep you and your loved ones safe, and to fight for our small businesses in an unprecedented crisis. 

In solidarity,

Rep. Robyn Vining

Face Coverings Required starting August 1st

Love Your Neighbor Mask UP WI.pngOn July 30th, Governor Tony Evers declared a Public Health Emergency and issued an Emergency Order requiring individuals to wear face coverings when indoors and not in a private residence, with some exceptions as clarified and defined in the order.

The order goes into effect on Saturday, August 1, 2020, and stays in effect until September 28, 2020 or by a subsequent superseding order. Executive Order #82 declaring a public health emergency is available HERE and Emergency Order #1 requiring face coverings statewide is available HERE

Because of the significant increase in community spread of COVID-19 in Wisconsin, the decision was made to implement mandatory face coverings in public when indoors to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

Dr. Ryan Westergaard, Wisconsin’s Chief Medical Officer and the State Epidemiologist for Communicable Diseases has said that a growing number of scientific studies tell us that face coverings, when used correctly and consistently by a large percentage of the community, are extremely effective for preventing the spread of COVID-19 through respiratory droplets.

If you have further questions about this new Emergency Order, please read the FAQs listed HERE.
