Well, well, well.
Today’s read is from Urban Milwaukee. Here’s a brief excerpt to get you started and then a link to the entire article.
More than a month after Wisconsin directed residents to stay home as much as possible to slow the spread of COVID-19, adherence to the state’s “safer-at-home” order is beginning to erode. At least, the trends indicated by smartphone tracking data suggest that as 2020 drags on, a small but rising number of Wisconsinites are growing so weary of pandemic-driven changes to their lives that they’re reverting to prior routines.
Originally set to expire on April 24, Gov. Tony Evers subsequently extended Wisconsin’s COVID-19 stay-at-home order through May 26. Mobility data show it may be difficult to keep some Wisconsinites from bending the order’s rules or outright returning to some of their pre-pandemic habits outside the home through to the end of the order’s extension.
