WEST POINT, WI – Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-West Point) released the following statement after legislative Democrats introduced legislation to reinstate the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“We have been in this pandemic for eleven months and while the vaccine offers some light at the end of the tunnel, we still need to use every tool we can to curb the spread of COVID. With a more contagious variant of the virus spreading throughout our state, health and science experts are urging citizens to continue safety measures such as using face coverings and social distancing. As elected officials, we took an oath to protect the lives of Wisconsin citizens and Republicans should have no problem supporting this bill.”
