The rule only apply to you, not the elites who rule you. At least that’s the message conveyed in Wisconsin Governor Tony Ever’s statewide mask mandate. The new mask mandate, aimed at lowering the transmission of COVID-19, applies to everyone in the state, except politicians.
All state facilities or government offices that fall under Wisconsin State Legislature and Wisconsin Supreme Court, are exempt from the order.
In section 4 of the mandate, a clarification reads, “State facilities or offices under the control of the Wisconsin State Legislature or the Wisconsin Supreme Court are exempt from this Order. The Wisconsin State Legislature and the Wisconsin Supreme Court may establish guidelines for face coverings that are consistent with the specific needs of their respective branches of government.”
The order is set to end on September 28th.
Wisconsin’s COVID-19 testing has been nothing short of a complete debacle. According to local Fox affiliate, there’s a 17,000 negative case backlog. The same article cites two different people claiming to have gotten both positive and negative results in the same day.
