In Wisconsin- $1B For Testing, Contact Tracing, Emergency COVID-19 Operations

The State of Wisconsin will use more than a billion dollars in federal money to pay for COVID-19 testing, contact tracing and emergency operations during the pandemic.  Governor Tony Evers says the effort will be funding by the CARES Act.  Tuesday, Evers said, “Wisconsin’s Safer at Home order may have ended, but our all-out war on the virus has not.”  State officials want to test increasing numbers of Wisconsin residents and expand a contact tracing program.  Fifty-two Wisconsin labs are said to be capable of analyzing 13 thousand COVID-19 tests-a-day.
