Curtis Walls, a Chicago native who now lives in Racine, lost his job as a forklift driver when the pandemic reached Wisconsin. For now, he’s been trying to live a normal life and has still been going out, but usually while wearing a mask or bandanna over his mouth. He was one of the first couple hundred people to get a free test from the Wisconsin National Guard Monday in the parking lot of Festival Hall. If his test comes back positive, “That means everything changes in my life. I’d be staying at home more. Right now I’m just out and about.”

“Like many in Racine, I will be closely watching which businesses are protecting their employees and their customers, and which ones are not. I will not hesitate to publicly acknowledge good actors and bad ones,” Mayor Cory Mason said. “If cases are traced to a business because of violations of this new order, we will publicly identify that business and they will be shut down.”
