Governor Evers Thursday Media Briefing


Governor Tony Evers held an update media briefing on Wisconsin’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Evers was joined by Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm, Traci DeSalvo, Acting Director, Bureau of Communicable Diseases and Ryan Nilsestuen, Chief Legal Counsel, Office of the Governor, to update the public on the state response to the pandemic.


During the media questions the Governor and his legal counsel responded to several proposals being proffered by Legislative Republicans in their COVID-19 response package. The Governor said he was aware of the Republican’s interest in being involved in the decision-making regarding the allocation of future federal Coronavirus Relief Funds and how the vaccine is allocated, but the Governor suggested involving 132 lawmakers in either one of those processes would be unwieldly. Regarding the COVID-19 Safe Harbor legislation, supported by WMC, the Governor’s legal counsel suggested that was a solution in search of the problem and criticized Republicans for trying to protect businesses from those who get sick versus protecting people from getting sick.
