I want to thank my colleagues for their support of the MKE Cares masking ordinance that was approved today by the full Common Council. Science has shown that masks are an effective way to slow the spread of COVID-19, and the unanimous decision to adopt MKE Cares demonstrates we as elected officials are unified in taking proper action to support the health and safety of our residents.

I also want to thank the countless businesses, citizens, and other stakeholders who took the time and effort during the last few weeks to make their voices heard on this proposal. The ordinance we adopted reflects your feedback.

Our work today will save lives and help reopen our economy safely as everyone wears a face covering. Milwaukee residents care about each other and we can turn this around together. Let’s make Milwaukee the healthiest city we can be.
