"Issuing a 'Safer at Home' order isn't something I thought we'd have to do, it's not something I wanted to do, and it's not something I take lightly," Governor Tony Evers said at the March 23 media briefing on COVID-19 where he announced a "Safer at Home" order that will take effect today, March 24. Department of Health Services Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm, at the governor's direction, will sign the order as "a necessary step to slow the spread of the disease and allow us to continue to prepare the health care system for this pandemic," Palm emphasized. The order, similar to a "shelter in place" requires people to stay home and nonessential businesses to close which will be detailed in today's DHS media briefing. Wisconsinites will be advised to only leave their homes if they need food, medicine, to see a doctor, or to exercise outside.
