Wisconsin’s Statewide Mask Mandate Repealed

OnFocus – Gov. Tony Evers’ mask mandate is immediately repealed today, after the State Assembly passed a resolution. The Assembly originally planned to vote later this month on a version that would have required the Senate to concur, but instead chose to vote now to end the mandate immediately.

Evers could still issue a new Emergency Order and another mask mandate.

The mandate was first implemented in August and extended two separate times. It is currently scheduled to be in place until March 20.

There are currently just ten states without a statewide mask mandate. Some counties and municipalities have also passed mask mandates that are implemented locally. These would have been upheld regardless of today’s vote.
