WACEP Urges Adherence to Public Health Orders in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians (WACEP), whose member physicians are on the frontlines in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, strongly urge all Wisconsinites to stay home and avoid gatherings of any type.  

WACEP favors postponement of the April 7th Spring Election in Wisconsin. In lieu of such action, voters who have already received an absentee ballot are strongly encouraged to vote absentee and have their ballot postmarked by the deadline of April 7th, election day, and received by April 13th at 4:00 pm.

To stop the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve, Wisconsin must adhere to current emergency orders, recommended social distancing and make all efforts to stay at home when possible.  In our state, the worst days of this crisis are still ahead of us but will be more manageable if we all act responsibly.
