MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers is warning that more deaths were to come from coronavirus cases in Wisconsin.

In a continued effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, Evers on Friday ordered all nail and hair salons, barbers, spas, tanning and tattoo parlors to be closed as of 5 p.m.

Evers says, "Things will get worse before they get better." Wisconsin logged its third death on Friday.

Health officials had no estimate on when the number of patients will outpace medical supplies and ICU beds to treat them.

There were 206 confirmed cases in 29 counties in Wisconsin, up from 155 in 21 counties on Thursday.

Governor Evers has waited too long to take the coronavirus seriously. There are thousands of people that have been exposed and not tested. These cases, including myself, have all the symptoms. We were told there are not enough kits for us to be tested. When our symptoms become worse, we can then be tested. All the mild cases of the coronavirus are exposing others. Mild cases of the coronavirus should also be recorded. Everyone who exhibits symptoms are going unrecognized. The Governor should place a Stay At Home Order!!!
