Leave it to Evers: Not until ‘it’s safe’

MADISON — At a press conference Wednesday, Gov. Tony Evers chuckled when asked by a reporter, “When are you going to say that we can stop wearing masks?”

“That’s a great question,” the governor said, chortling through his mask. He sounded a bit like Snuffleupagus, Big Bird’s friend from Sesame Street.

Evers’ answer: “When it’s safe.”

When will it be “safe?” When more than 70 percent of Wisconsinites get their COVID vaccines? When we’ve reached herd immunity?

No.

It will be safe when this controlling governor decides it’s safe — and not a minute before.

“We don’t have a mask mandate in this state, in case you didn’t know that,” Evers said, still smarting from the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s ruling knocking out Evers’ illegal statewide face covering edict. So the Democrat is “relying” on local unelected public health bureaucrats to carry out the administration’s will.

For now, Evers says he’s wearing a mask around the office but not at the Executive Mansion. He’s been vaccinated, “twice.” But he’s not taking any chances, and he’d prefer you didn’t, either.

“I will continue to wear masks if I’m in a situation where I feel it’s warranted.”

In other words, all political situations.

  • He couldn’t run the education system. Why would we listen to him regarding our health! He can wear a mask forever, but the rest of us have the freedom to decide for ourselves.

  • Mr. Evers does not have the medical knowledge to understand the ramifications of respiratory & metabolic acidosis. Breathing in your own carbon dioxide all day changes your body chemistry acidotic, therefore making you more prone to infections, cardiac arrhythmias,
    And those people with lung disease could get to the point of not breathing and death. Ask yourself, how often does the general public change their masks? Note, these masks are only good for 20 min. And will not filter a virus that is .01. microns. The N 95 will filter only a virus that is .03 microns [see 3m’s N95 specifications] and needs to be fit tested every 6 months to the individuals personal body shape and size.
    Don’t believe me, do the research.

  • Apparently Evers hasn’t been out? people are thriving and enjoying life. Doesn’t he know most people have experienced many more problems than Covid?

    If you have been vaccinated You are free! if you haven’t been and are scared, stay a prisoner of his system. Just don’t be a prisoner of the system we are experiencing.
