’Wisconsin Ready: ’ Gov. Evers lays out what is needed to reopen economy

NEXT:

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Gov. Tony Evers, along with the Greater Milwaukee Committee, laid out their plans on Monday, April 27, to safely open up the economy. 

Gov. Evers' said in order to reopen, they need to develop more testing, get more personal protection equipment, do more contact tracing and analyze where the virus is progressing. 

Evers. also said they are continuing to evaluate how businesses can operate safely as they slowly reopen. 

Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) officials say they have a program called "Wisconsin Ready." The goal is to get businesses ready to open when the order is lifted, like giving businesses resources about how they can do it safely; for example: whether workers should wear PPE and put up plexiglass. 

Health officials say they saw a spike last Thursday and Friday, that went against the trend recently. 

Gov. Evers said they are working with people across the state to get the economy open as soon as it's safe to do so. 

"Many discussions with business owners, business leaders around the state. As well as many working folks and we will keep these conversations going as we continue to turn that dial. We have to be patient and I know that’s tough. Workers, businesses and consumers alike. Everyone depends on a thriving economy and I have faith in Wisconsinites and we will get there,” said Gov. Evers. 

Evers' Safer at Home order is set to expire May 26.

Tax' em Tony would rather kill our economy and shred our constitution all in the name of "safety" and all the sheep are so ready to follow this idiot off the cliff. Look at the new numbers. The death rate is no where near what they thought it was, if they want to protect those that are most vulnerable fine, but to throw away our rights on faulty numbers and bloated death tolls is beyond rediculous, all just to keep the weak and meek scared and cowering in their homes and not asking questions. If they can do it for this, they can do it for any reason at any time. At this point, the flu is just as deadly as the virus is. With all the new testing results, they have found more people have had it and recovered then they knew. Time to open up and let people have their lives back. Wake up people, it's a power grab.. that's all.
