Statement: Wisconsin Hospital Association Letter

November 19, 2020 

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement about the communication from the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA).

"I agree with the Wisconsin Hospital Association that more must be done to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Wisconsin needs more COVID testing, contact tracers and other solutions to help ease the strain on our healthcare facilities, decrease the rate of transmission and ultimately save lives.

"Because my Assembly Republican colleagues and I are in continuous contact with WHA, local healthcare providers and public health officials, the issues brought forward in the letter do not come as a surprise. I look forward to partnering with WHA to address these important concerns.

"Wisconsinites are forever grateful for the tireless efforts of our healthcare workers during these demanding times. Their dedication on the frontlines of the pandemic is unparalleled.

"I join the call for unity in Wisconsin and hope my Senate colleagues and the governor can join me in putting aside partisan differences to find bipartisan answers."
