3 p.m.: Wisconsin receives PPE donation from Chinese province

Gov. Tony Evers announced Sunday that the state received 10,000 procedural masks and 1,000 medical outfits from its sister state, Heilongjiang Province in China.

The province and Wisconsin have a long-standing relationship, which was celebrated in 2017 with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and U.S. Consulate in Shenyang.

When Carolyn Brady, international partnership and outreach programs coordinator for UW-River Falls, reached out to see if any masks were available recently, the province said yes and shipped them.
