Gov. Evers issues new Public Health Emergency

Due to overwhelmed hospitals in the state, Governor Tony Evers has announced a new Public Health Emergency.  In a news release Friday afternoon, Gov. Evers says the new executive order is in response to “Wisconsin Hospitals being overwhelmed and facing staffing shortages”.  Wisconsin hospitals are reportedly operating at or very near full capacity with healthcare providers struggling to keep up with the demand.  The mask mandate which was originally instituted in September was extended earlier this week into 2021.  You can read the Emergency Order #1 and Executive Order #95 here.  Both orders are effective immediately and will expire in 60 days.
