MILWAUKEE — Wisconsin saw another surge of COVID-19 cases on Tuesday. According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, 7,073 new cases were reported.

Gov. Tony Evers announced he would address the state on the rising number of cases. As some people waited in line to get tested for COVID-19 at the Miller Park testing site, some locals said they will be tuning in to hear what the Governor has to say.

Dannie Janovitch works for Meals on Wheels and she would like to see everyone fully complying with the mask mandate and hopes schools move to all virtual learning.

"Yes absolutely! I really, really do unless it’s absolutely necessary for the course to be in person it should be online," said Dannie.

Ray Berumen said the rising COVID-19 cases are concerning but he is trying to do his part to slow down the spread.

“By staying in,” said Ray.

As Milwaukee leaders talked about COVID-19 in the City some hoped the Govoner will speak on the need for unity between legislators.

County executive David Crowley also said he hopes the governor talks about allocating more money to municipalities who are at the ground level in the fight against Covid-19.
