Mask Mandate Takes Effect Statewide Today


Today is the start of the new mask mandate in the state of the Wisconsin. Governor Tony Evers announced on Thursday that masks need to be worn when in public. "The sooner we get back to working together to flatten the curve and prevent the spread of COVID-19, the sooner we can get back to work, schools, sports, shopping, restaurants and doing all the things I know we all miss. As soon as we can do them safely."  

Effective today, people age five and up are required to wear a face covering when inside or in an enclosed space, other than a private residence, and around those who aren’t members of their household. Evers recommends masks outdoors when social distancing is not possible. 

It's obvious looking at the comments on our KFIZ Facebook page, that there are two definite camps when it comes to the mask mandate. Those that think its wise to wear them, and those that feel their rights are being infringed upon by being forced to wear the mask. It's clear it's a battle that is not going away anytime soon.

Wow, you wannabe patriots just looking to water the tree of liberty makes me laugh. You with your flag t-shirts and MAGA hats, prancing around like pretend Minutemen. You really don't get it do you? You're really that ignorant? Viruses don't care about your alleged freedoms, but you know what? Go ahead and walk around without a mask. Raise your hands in the air and cry, "give me freedom, or give me death!" Then crack open a cheap beer and pretend you've made a difference aside from just being a waste of air. Will you take responsibility for those that you might infect? Maybe if we're lucky, your DNA will be knocked out of the gene pool, and these types of conversations will become moot due to an overwhelming abundance of common sense.

Go trump!! He has done more to drain the swamp than any other president. He has allowed states to run things. Funny how all the blue controlled areas have had high infection rates. Amazing how masks are not required for looting and rioting.
