Audio file of radio address.

MADISON —​ Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address urging Wisconsinites who attended a holiday gathering to help stop the spread by taking precautions to keep others safe.

Hello, Wisconsin. Governor Tony Evers here.

As we continue to move through the holiday season and winter months, we must be as vigilant as ever that we are taking every precaution to protect ourselves, our friends, families, neighbors, and fellow Wisconsinites from the spread of this virus.

If you chose to gather with people outside of your household for Thanksgiving, then we’re going to need your help in the days ahead to keep others safe.

So, go get tested. Symptoms could appear 14 days after exposure, but we need your help to box in the virus and stop the spread, so you can help today by isolating yourself away from others until you get results.

And also remember—a negative test today does not guarantee a negative test tomorrow, and not every COVID positive person will display symptoms, so the safest thing to do is to continue to stay home as much as you can and avoid contact with others.

If you absolutely must go out, please wear a mask and maintain distance from anyone you do not live with.

Staying home, practicing social distancing, and wearing a mask are not political statements—it’s a sign to the people you pass that you care about them and their health and safety.

Those basic actions can and will save lives when done properly and when done together. Thank you very much.
