WISCONSIN — Congressman Mark Pocan, Speaker Robin Vos, and the Stop the COVID Spread coalition issued a statement Monday urging Wisconsinites to wear masks, wash their hands, and stay home when possible.

The statement also comes in a new ad that will begin broadcasting Monday across the state. In the advertisement, both Vos and Pocan speak about the importance of preventative measures including wearing masks, hand washing, practicing social distancing, and staying home whenever possible.

“After another election, it’s clear we have differences, but we can also agree,” Speaker Vos says in the ad. “We can still live our lives and be sensible and safe.”

“We have to do all we can to stay safe,” Congressman Pocan said.

This is the fifth advertisement that Stop the COVID Spread Coalition has made since their launch in October. Since then, they have grown quickly to include more than 125 of Wisconsin’s leading health care, business, and advocacy organizations, the coalition said in a press release Monday.

“Wisconsin needs unified responses to the COVID pandemic and aligning around a common message is critical,” said Eric Borgerding, President, and CEO of the Wisconsin Hospital Association.
