Today, Gov. Evers issued Executive Order #90 declaring a new public health emergency in Wisconsin due to recent surges in COVID-19 cases. He also issued a new face coverings order, Emergency Order #1. While these orders are new, they have no material changes from the mask mandate orders Gov. Evers’ issued on July 30 (check out our post outlining what the initial Order covered). The orders issued today operate as an extension of the previous orders. They are effective immediately and will expire after sixty days (Nov. 21) or with a subsequent superseding order.
On July 30, Gov. Evers issued Executive Order #82 to declare a public health emergency as a result of a spike in COVID-19 cases in counties throughout the state. At that same time, Gov. Evers issued a statewide face covering mandate. Both orders from July are set to expire on Monday.
