Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down statewide mask mandate

The Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' statewide mask mandate Wednesday, March 31, stripping the governor of one of his last remaining tools to curb large-scale spread of COVID-19 as the state stands on the precipice of another surge in infections. "At the state level, it is gone. I respect the decision of the supreme court, even though I think it was erroneous on a legal issue and frankly a moral issue," Gov. Evers said on Wednesday.
