A negative test doesn't give you immunity from CONVID 19. It just tells you that you don't have it YET.

Two weeks in isolation doesn't provide you with immunity. You can still come out of your house and be exposed/catch the virus.

81% of Milwaukee's COVID 19 confirmed cases are African Americans, living primarily on the north side. Milwaukee is only 27% African American.

It's going to be like some kind of Zombie Apocalypse... This is going to be a serious problem. A lot more people are going to die on the north side of Milwaukee than the entire rest of Wisconsin.

Unfortunately, this is also true for most other urban African American populations, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, NYC...

If we can save Milwaukee's north side, we can save state...
