Coronavirus has turned life upside down in Wisconsin. But the state still has an April 7 election coming up, with a presidential primary, state Supreme Court race and hundreds of local races. Their pandemic experiences could shape future politics.
Many aid organizations in Wisconsin are staying open to help people through the COVID-19 pandemic, but not without changes. Food pantries are turning into drive-thrus and shelters are expanding their hours and cleaning routines.
While many Wisconsinites are contemplating what life will be like under a stay-at-home order, others are desperately trying to return home from other countries where borders are being closed and international flights canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The state Department of Health Services announced 416 positive cases of COVID-19 statewide on March 23, as well as 7,050 negative tests. However, the number continues to grow as counties announce more positive test results.
