Hours after the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down the state's stay-at-home order, bars were packed with crowds forgoing masks and social-distancing recommendations during the coronavirus pandemic.
DARA KASS: The actions of the individuals in Wisconsin are the epitome of putting yourself before anybody else. Running to a bar, the minute you decided it's OK to go outside is just plain selfish.
TONY EVERS: We are the wild west, [? Sally. ?] There are no restrictions at all across the state of Wisconsin.
DARA KASS: In every reopening strategy put out by every governor, even the White House, bars and restaurants are not the first place you're supposed to go when we decide to loosen the restrictions. We start with lower contact, lower risk environments that are better for the local economy. And unfortunately, what we saw in Wisconsin is going to have effects for people in their community.
At some point, we're just going to have to be responsible for ourselves. Understand that every interaction you have, everybody you communicate with, and everyone that you engage with adds more risk to you in getting this virus. I hope that Wisconsin does not see a surge of cases in the community of people that went out for the bar, but the truth is public health doesn't stop because we're tired.
