Be Safe Wisconsin
Thedcare News 
When the Be Safe Wisconsin initiative launched four weeks ago, we knew that what it means to Be Safe in the fluid COVID-19 environment would change. At the time, stay at home orders were initiated, masks were just introduced as a precaution and non-essential businesses were closed. Fast forward to today and the COVID-19 landscape in Wisconsin is different. As our state continues to reopen, it is more important than ever that we encourage our family, friends, colleagues and neighbors to be safe.
