MADISON, Wis.—In response to Senator Ron Johnson’s recent comments asking “do masks even work,” Opportunity Wisconsin released the following statement. Last month, a former member of President Trump’s White House Coronavirus Task Force called Senator Johnson’s views on Covid-19 “fundamentally dangerous.”

Meghan Roh, Opportunity Wisconsin program director:
“This is yet another example of Senator Johnson going out of his way to sow dangerous misinformation at a time when Wisconsin’s workers and families continue to dig out from Covid-19’s devastation and are faced with the rise of the Delta variant. Senator Johnson said no to critical relief checks, he’s said no to vaccines, and now he’s saying no to masks. How exactly does Senator Johnson propose the Badger State get through this pandemic? Wisconsin residents deserve elected officials that are going to fight alongside us, instead of actively working against us.”
