Stop the COVID Spread! Coalition Ramps Up Message, Releases Ad with Frontline Nurse
Coalition grows to nearly 100 members
This week, the “Stop the COVID Spread!” coalition released its third public education announcement on broadcast TV and digital platforms statewide, the latest in the coalition’s efforts urging Wisconsin residents to do their part to help reverse the public health crisis that is threatening to overwhelm the state. Watch the ad here.
The latest ad features Katie, a registered nurse at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center- Appleton.
“We are all sick and tired of COVID-19, but right now Wisconsin, we need you to step up,” Katie says in the ad. “As scary as it can be, and as difficult and challenging as our days are, we just need everyone else to gather in and help us.”
“As rates of COVID-19 infection continue to escalate throughout Wisconsin, this message is a crucial reminder from the health care workers who are putting themselves on the line each day to keep our state’s residents safe and healthy,” said WHA President and CEO Eric Borgerding. “We count on these health care heroes to be there for us and our loved ones, so thank them by wearing masks, social distancing, and taking this deadly pandemic seriously. For those essential workers and the vulnerable in our communities, we need to turn this public health crisis around.”
Since its launch on October 9, the “Stop the COVID Spread!” coalition has grown dramatically to include nearly 100 of Wisconsin’s leading health care, business, and advocacy organizations, including the recent addition of more than 40 chambers of commerce from communities all over Wisconsin. The organizations have joined a campaign to educate the public about the seriousness of the growing crisis in Wisconsin and the critical and growing need for preventive measures.
