from this morning ‘s email:
Our city has been hurt by COVID-19 disproportionately compared to other areas across the state. As such, we must continue our previously issued “Safer-at-Home” order to protect our most vulnerable residents, particularly our African American and Latino communities that have experienced devastating loss of life.
We will not sit idle as Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices who ruled to overturn Governor Tony Evers’ “Safer-at-Home” order choose politics over science. As parents of young children, the recent news of children dying from COVID-19 related symptoms is terrifying.
Public health experts have warned that if we end restriction too quickly it will result in needless death and suffering. The virus is still spreading and we must continue to remain vigilant and united in our response.
To our fellow communities across the state we ask that you unite with us to protect our residents and fight the spread of this deadly virus that knows no boundaries and doesn’t distinguish between Milwaukee, Greenfield or any other community as it spreads and kills.
And to the residents of Milwaukee, we want things to be back to normal as much as you do, but the virus is still here and our normal has changed. We are all in this together and we will get through this together.
