Joint Statement from Wisconsin Health Care Leaders

Health care leaders from across Wisconsin, including the Wisconsin Nurses Association, have signed a joint letter urging the public to abide by the “Safer at Home” order for COVID-19.

“Wisconsin’s hospitals, health systems, physicians, nurses, clinics, health centers, nursing homes and long-term care facilities strongly support the ‘Safer at Home’ order Governor Evers announced today. We must do this to keep our health care system from becoming overwhelmed, and to protect both the public and essential health care workers who are necessary to take care of the critically ill. 

We understand the ramifications of a “Safer at Home” order for Wisconsin businesses, their employees and families. These are very difficult decisions that affect many of our own families and friends and we hope it can be over as soon and as safely as possible. But the continued rise of COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin, now in part due to community spread, necessitates more dramatic action that we believe will help us get through this challenge even faster.”
