As Wisconsin experiences a surge in COVID cases, it is important that we all do what we can to stop its spread. According to the Wisconsin Hospital Association, there are areas of the state that have few, if any, ICU beds immediately available and staffing shortages are becoming a major issue. While the recovery rate for COVID is very high and most cases are mild, healthcare and other frontline workers need our help to stop the spread of the virus.
I agree with Governor Evers that our success in fighting the virus rests on individual responsibility. Once again, I encourage everyone to adhere to CDC guidelines: wear a mask, socially distance, frequently wash your hands, follow local restrictions and stay home as much as possible.
The “Stop the Covid Spread!” coalition is a group of business leaders, healthcare providers, and other groups that are working together to encourage preventative measures to stop the spread of COVID.
