(WAOW) — Governor Tony Evers has released a video message on a "a dangerous decision" to temporarily block a order limiting mass gatherings.

Gov. Evers Urges Wisconsinites to Stay Home

Today there was a dangerous decision to temporarily put a hold on our order limiting mass gatherings. We’ll be challenging that decision, but here’s the bottom line: Wisconsinites, stay home.We are at a critical point in the battle against this virus and just because some folks out there want to see full bars and full hospitals doesn’t mean we have to listen. If we want to get back to enjoying our favorite bars and restaurants and events, then we need to stay home.Limit your outings to essential needs and always wear a face covering when you are out and about. Even the White House agrees-- in this week’s Wisconsin report, they said: “Lack of compliance with these measures will lead to preventable deaths.”We can and will get through these hard times if we band together, look out for our neighbors, and put science and public health before politics. That’s what I am going to do, and I hope you’ll join me.

The order that limits public gatherings to no more than 25% of a room or building's total occupancy was put in place October 6. A judge blocked the order on October 14 after a lawsuit was filed by the Tavern League of Wisconsin.

Gov. Evers says that they will be challenging the decision.
