WISCONSIN — Governor Tony Evers is now asking for volunteers to help fight COVID-19 in Wisconsin.

If you are a retired health care professional, or would like to help fight COVID-19, Evers has launched a program where you can sign up.

In the coming weeks, the number of sick Wisconsinites is expected to surge and medical professionals need all the help they can get.

The more volunteers the state has, the less hardships there will be on hospitals, clinics, and medical professionals.

“We are creating a wide network of volunteers to increase capacity at hospitals and clinics across Wisconsin,” said Evers. “Our top priority is to make sure there are enough resources to care for the growing number of people who require hospitalization or other healthcare interventions because of this pandemic.”

Both active and retired medical professionals can sign up to help by entering their information here.

If you aren't a medical professional, the governor is asking that you sign up for a non-clinical support option. You can sign up with for those roles here.

Volunteers will be assigned to locations across the state, and if you're willing to travel, you should note that when signing up.
