Stop the Spread

To help stop community spread of COVID-19 and further increase public awareness about the seriousness of this pandemic and the critical need for preventative measures, the Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources, Inc. (GWAAR) and the Wisconsin Aging Advocacy Network (WAAN) have officially joined the “Stop the COVID Spread!” coalition.

The coalition includes Wisconsin’s leading health care, business, and advocacy organizations along with prominent individuals who have joined together to urge the public to take preventative measures seriously so that we can all continue to safely participate in Wisconsin’s economy.

We encourage all of our aging network partners to help share important messages from the coalition. We must all come together to help stop community spread.
