Evers Loosens Restrictions, Allowing More Businesses to Open
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Dog groomers, upholsterers, lawnmower repair shops, and other nonessential businesses that can offer contact-less services will be allowed to reopen in Wisconsin, Gov. Tony Evers announced Monday.
Outdoor recreational rental businesses, such as boats, golf carts, and kayaks, can also reopen, along with self-service or automatic car washes.
Evers called it as a “turn of the dial” in trying to curb the spread of the coronavirus while also allowing some businesses to resume operations, with some limitations. The order takes effect Wednesday.
Staff within the business must be limited to one person per room or confined space at a time. Payment must be made online or by phone and drop-offs and pick-ups must be scheduled ahead of time. Customers are not allowed inside the businesses.
“This order means that every business across our state can do things like deliveries, mailings, curbside pick-up, and drop-off, and it’s an important step in making sure that while folks are staying safer at home, they can also continue to support small businesses across our state,” Evers said.
