Dane County Executive Parisi issued the following statement regarding the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision to uphold local health officials’ ability to issue public health orders:

“Today’s ruling is a win for every resident of our community. This ruling ensures that our public health department will have the ability to keep our community safe—and that decision making will remain science-based. Our public health department’s careful, deliberate, and science-based actions during the pandemic are the major reason Dane County experienced one of the lowest per capita COVID death rates in the nation throughout the pandemic. We are grateful for their dedication and perseverance.”
