Today marks one week since the Secretary of Department of Health Services for Wiscosin issued the Safer at Home order and many of us have been self isolating at home for non essential activities for over two weeks. The current order is in effect until April 24th, but may likely need to be extended. New cases are expected to continue to climb locally and nationally over the next several weeks as the infection spreads quickly, including by individuals that are not showing any symptoms.
