A new coalition aiming to stop the spread of COVID-19 is bringing together the WBA and all three of Wisconsin’s major professional sports teams.
Players from the Brewers, Bucks, and Packers have voiced their support for the “Stop the COVID Spread!” coalition and have recently been featured in advertisements encouraging Wisconsin residents to do their part in slowing the spread of the virus.
“We know that everyone must do their part to stop the rapid spread of COVID-19 in our state and we are pleased to join this effort through a public service announcement and encourage Wisconsinites to join our team in wearing masks, social distancing and washing your hands. It’s time to get in the game Wisconsin!” said Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy.
The coalition has released its second public education announcement which features Green Bay Packers players Adrian Amos, Kenny Clark, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Leaders of all three organizations have also spoken on behalf of the coalition and Wisconsin’s role in the efforts.
