September 30, 2020
MADISON, Wis. - Gov. Tony Evers urged people throughout Wisconsin on Tuesday to "get on the same team" by taking steps to slow the spread of COVID-19, with cases statewide at their highest numbers since the pandemic started.
"We are in crisis right now," said Dr. Ryan Westergaard, Wisconsin's chief medical officer.
On Tuesday, Wisconsin recorded its highest single-day increase in deaths from COVID-19 since May. The state's seven-day average in new confirmed cases was three times higher than a month ago and Wisconsin ranked third in new cases per capita over the past two weeks.
