Statement from Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele


By - Mar 23rd, 2020 10:06 am

“I commend Governor Evers for taking aggressive action to combat the spread of COVID-19. I am certain this decision was not an easy one, but the Governor’s order for Wisconsin residents to stay at home is the right thing to do to ensure we are protecting the health and well-being of our residents. I strongly encourage everyone in Milwaukee County to follow the guidelines and ensure the safety of their neighbors as we work to confront this pandemic. We must do what we can to support the people on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19, and those most vulnerable to its consequences.”
