Wisconsin’s business community is calling on people around the state to do what it takes to stop the spread of COVID-19, and get businesses back to work, as part of a “We’re All In” campaign. 

Missy Hughes of Viroqua is the secretary of WEDC, the state economic development agency, and she told reporters in La Crosse on Wednesday that communities like this one can set examples for the rest of the state.    

Those examples involve the usual practices we’ve been hearing about…such as keeping social distances, and wearing face coverings.

La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat says he knows that people are tired of rituals such as wearing face masks, and frequently washing hands.
