WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Gov. Evers has released a new video on Facebook saying a hold put on his order limiting public gatherings will be challenged.

“Today there was a dangerous decision to temporarily put a hold on our order limiting public gatherings. We’ll be challenging that decision. But here’s the bottom line, we have to stay the course. We are at a critical point in the battle against this virus. Yesterday, we had a record-setting date for hospitalization, new cases, and COVID-19 deaths,” Gov. Evers said.

He urged people to stay at home.

“Even the White House agrees. In this week’s report from the state of Wisconsin they said this lack of compliance with these measures will lead to preventable deaths. Here’s the bottom line-- What we are seeing is not inevitable. We control our own destiny here and we do not have to accept rising case numbers and communities spread,” he said.

Gov. Evers Urges Wisconsinites to Stay Home

Today there was a dangerous decision to temporarily put a hold on our order limiting mass gatherings. We’ll be challenging that decision, but here’s the bottom line: Wisconsinites, stay home. We are at a critical point in the battle against this virus and just because some folks out there want to see full bars and full hospitals doesn’t mean we have to listen. If we want to get back to enjoying our favorite bars and restaurants and events, then we need to stay home. Limit your outings to essential needs and always wear a face covering when you are out and about. Even the White House agrees-- in this week’s Wisconsin report, they said: “Lack of compliance with these measures will lead to preventable deaths.” We can and will get through these hard times if we band together, look out for our neighbors, and put science and public health before politics. That’s what I am going to do, and I hope you’ll join me.
