Gov. Evers Media Briefing

Governor Tony Evers; Secretary-designee Andrea Palm, Wisconsin Department of Health Services; Dr. Ryan Westergaard, Chief Medical Officer, DHS Bureau of Communicable Diseases; and Ryan Nilsestuen, Chief Legal Counsel, Office of the Governor gave a briefing on Wisconsin’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The majority of the media availability was spent encouraging Wisconsinites to stay home for the Thanksgiving holiday, with both Governor Evers and Secretary Palm sharing that each of their Thanksgiving celebrations will be spent only with their respective spouses at home.

When asked about whether or not Wisconsin is seeing a meaningful decline in positive cases, Dr. Westegaard noted that it was a good sign that our 7-day positive rate is less than it was a week ago, but Wisconsin has very high community spread in all communities in the state and it will be a while before that trend is reversed, acknowledging a positive sign but still a long way to go.

When asked about the status of discussions between he and Republican legislative leaders and where there are areas of potential common ground, Governor Evers noted those were private conversations and he doesn’t want to impact those negotiations but noted that legislation that was passed in the Spring for the original health emergency is likely an easy place for common ground for all parties to start and then they will move on from there.
