“For someone who claims to be following the science, Governor Evers is ignoring his own data and the results of his mandatory mask experiment.

“According to Evers’ third COVID Emergency Order, Wisconsin’s COVID infection rate has
decreased or remained flat for nearly every age group since early July, more than a month before his original mask order. In addition, Wisconsin’s recent spike in COVID infections is almost entirely driven by 18-24 year olds on college campuses and has exclusively occurred while Evers’ mask mandate has been in effect.

“Instead of following the science and the data, Evers’ is once again continuing his “one size fits all” approach to the virus, doubling down on a strategy that has proven ineffective for the age group driving the COVID-infection spike.

“I remain ready to vote to repeal this mask mandate.”
