Board tells state to reopen

The Kewaunee County Board has sent its message to Governor Tony Evers that it is ready for the area and the state to reopen sooner rather than later. During its virtual meeting Tuesday night, the board approved the resolution 17-3 to ask the Governor to begin reopening the state on May 12th, which corresponds with the end of his emergency powers. Governor Evers previously extended the Safer at Home order from April 24th to May 26th as a way to further control the spread of the coronavirus. The county received close to 50 letters concerning the resolution with 28 letters in favor of the resolution and 20 against.

 

District 13 Supervisor Kim Kroll raised the motion to pass the resolution, calling to protect people’s health as well as their businesses.

In contrast, District 20 Supervisor Joanne Lazansky said the board needs to trust the opinion of medical experts.

Earlier in the meeting, Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard updated the board on the area’s COVID-19 statistics, which includes 13 positive cases in Kewaunee County.
