Mayor Rhodes-Conway’s Statement Regarding Wisconsin’s Statewide Mask Order
Thursday, July 30, 2020 - 3:35pm
While the COVID-19 numbers in Madison are going in the right direction again, the pandemic is out of control in much of the state. Even the Supreme Court thought that Republican leaders in the legislature would act, but they have abdicated their responsibility to protect the public from illness and death.
Governor Evers is right to take decisive action on a mask order before the school year begins and I hope that the courts will support this inexpensive, common sense measure which has proven to reduce the transmission rate.
