Dear Friends,

As you may have heard, Governor Evers announced a “Safer-at-Home” order which will begin tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 8:00am and last until Friday, April 24, 2020. 

That means for the next month, all non-essential businesses will close and people should stay home as much as possible. Essential businesses include grocery stores, health care providers, pharmacies, and more. Please take a moment to read the entire order here .
 
There are also some important deadlines coming up:
 
Both the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Wisconsin are extending the deadline to file your taxes to July 15th. You will not need to file an extension.
 
On Tuesday, April 7th, Wisconsin will hold the 2020 Spring Election and Presidential Preference vote. Registered voters can still request an absentee ballot. Please visit Myvote.wi.gov to request a ballot, find out where you can early vote, and what will be on your ballot.
 
It is important we follow the CDC guidelines on good personal hygiene and perform social distancing. This will help limit a spike in cases which could overwhelm our hospitals and healthcare providers. We must do all we can to limit the spread of COVID-19. Please wash your hands, maintain social distancing, and limit your trips outside as much as possible.
 
Right now it is critical we do everything we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 and allow our medical community to stock up on the much needed supplies they will need. In fact, if you have access to medical supplies such as masks and hand sanitizer, please consider donating those supplies to first responders and health care providers.

I understand many families will be struggling. However, I am working to help make sure we get though this with as little harm to you and local businesses as possible. Together, we can make a difference.

Please do what you can to flatten the curve and stay healthy.

On, Wisconsin!
