Statement of Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway on Lawsuit Challenging Recent Public Health Order
Wednesday, January 20, 2021 - 12:24pm
It's just really telling that this week--when more Americans have died from COVID than died in World War II, that Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) continues to try and undermine our effort to keep people safe, healthy, and alive.
Thirty-eight percent of people who tested positive in our community reported attending a gathering or party, which is the highest percentage we have seen since August. Any time people gather, there is opportunity for the virus to spread, which prolongs the pandemic. Without gathering limits, we believe this number would be even higher, and the virus would be spreading more.
