DHS Launches “You Stop the Spread” Campaign to Prevent COVID Transmission

September 10, 2020

Alongside the WHA  and other coalition members’ launch of a new public service announcement urging Wisconsinites to “keep it up” to stop the spread of COVID-19, Governor Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services announced a new statewide campaign to prevent COVID transmission.  "You Stop the Spread"  encourages everyone to follow four simple steps to prevent COVID from spreading:  wearing a mask, washing your hands, staying 6 feet from others and staying home if you can.  The campaign encourages using social media to post pictures and messages describing how individuals are stopping the spread.  DHS also created a toolkit that contains videos and print materials in multiple languages that can be used to help promote the campaign. 
"Stopping the spread of COVID-19 depends on all of us doing our part, but each of us have our own reasons that motivate us,” said Governor Evers. “That’s why this campaign features Wisconsinites from across our state, and we hope folks will participate by posting photos to share with friends and neighbors about why you’re doing your part, too, to help stop the spread.”  DHS Secretary Andrea Palm noted that disease activity is high across the entire state, and “You Stop the Spread” will reach individuals and communities in every corner of Wisconsin and will encourage everyone to work together in taking these actions.
