Evers Prepares “Safer at Home” Order

Gov. Tony Evers announced on Twitter that he would announce a “Safer at Home” order, asking people to stay in their homes. Details of the order will be released by Evers tomorrow, Tuesday March 24. The order tells people to “cease all non-essential business statewide.”

The governor did not define “non-essential business” on his Twitter feed.

The “Safer at Home” comes on the heels of Evers saying on Friday he would not seek a shelter in place order. In his press conference today, The governor’s’ office said that the weekend’s rapidly evolving spread of the virus  led Evers to change his mind.

The Department of Health Services has confirmed 416 cases of COVID-19 in Wisconsin.

“I know this has been difficult and has disrupted the lives of people across our state,” Evers tweeted. “That’s why issuing a #SaferAtHome order isn’t something I thought we’d have to do, and it’s not something I take lightly. But here’s the bottom line: folks need to start taking this seriously.”
