MADISON – The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) today released new links for COVID-19 information in Spanish and Hmong. The existing information on DWD's website designated for up-to-date COVID-19 information in English was translated to comprehensively disseminate relevant information to more Wisconsinites.
DWD Launches New Links in Spanish and Hmong Related DWD COVID-19 Information "DWD's information on COVID-19 should be available to as many people as possible because we want to help as many people as possible," Secretary Caleb Frostman said. "We are a state agency, and so we must serve the state, and that includes people of diverse backgrounds where English is not their first language."
Translated links in English, Spanish, and Hmong can be found below:
