The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled on Mar. 31, 2021, that the governor overstepped his authority when he declared several states of emergency since the start of the pandemic without input from the legislature. The ruling invalidates the current emergency order, which includes a statewide mask mandate.
Local mask mandates remain in place.
Previously, on February 4, 2021, the State Assembly passed a resolution to end the public health emergency and mask mandate. Governor Evers immediately issued Executive Order #105, proclaiming a new state of emergency and reinstituting the mask mandate.
