MADISON, WI -- Wisconsin governor Tony Evers says he is considering extending the state's "Safer at Home" order.

The current stay-at-home order is set to expire on April 24th.

The governors of Minnesota and Michigan have already extended their state's stay-at-home orders.

Minnesota's was set to expire Friday, April 10th, but has been extended until May 4th.

Wisconsin's Department of Health Services Secretary Andrea Palm says they will do what is necessary to flatten the curve in the state.

Right now, there are no specific plans or timeline to extend the order.

"Until we have a vaccine, until we have medical intervention we are going, as the governor said, to have to very actively manage this outbreak, and 'Safer at Home' is the current tool we are using," said Palm.

Evers added they're hoping to craft legislation next week that will further alleviate the burden on those impacted by COVID-19.
