As you may already know, Governor Evers declared a public health emergency this past Thursday (3/12) to allow the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to use all the resources necessary to respond to and contain novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Wisconsin.
We know that our nonprofits will also be on the front lines of supporting our communities through the challenges caused by COVID-19, and we hope the following resources are helpful as we all take steps to be prepared.
