MADISON, Wis. (WAOW) - Monday, Governor Tony Evers announced a series of steps he intends to take - what he dubs the 'Badger Bounce Back plan' - to help re-open the state and bolster its economy once its safe to do so.

According to a news release, the plan was developed in part alongside President Donald Trump's Guidelines for Opening Up America.

The release says Wisconsin does not currently meet the guidelines to reopen yet, but Badger Bounce Back is a way to get there.

The first step is implementing a larger array and availability of COVID-19 tests across the state. The goal is 85,000 tests weekly.

From there, the plan would work to aggressively track those who have tested positive, as well as those they have come in contact with, to reduce exposure time by identifying and enforcing quarantine when necessary.

Below, you can read the full plan. You can also watch the video with this story where Gov. Evers and other members of his administration give more details on the plan.
