Gov. Evers encourages Wisconsin to keep social distancing; 'We're not out of the woods just yet'

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Gov. Tony Evers on Monday, April 20, encouraged Wisconsinites to keep social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This, after crowds flocked to the streets over the weekend to protest his 'safer at home' order that's been extended until May 26. 

"It's because of you that we have helped flatten the curve which has resulted in fewer cases and hospitalizations," said Evers in a Facebook video. "I'm going to rely on science and public health experts to help guide us through these challenges because at the end of the day, my bottom line is keeping people safe and we're not out of the woods just yet."
