The Bright Side
The “safer-at-home” order is in place until May 26th, but some of the restrictions have become a bit more relaxed.
Governor Evers is allowing some non-essential businesses to do curbside drop off and pickup. Dog groomers, small engine repair shops, and upholstery businesses are now allowed to open. Outdoor recreational rentals including boats, golf carts, kayaks, and other like rentals can resume as well as, self-service car washes. Of course, all the businesses allowed to reopen must comply with strict sanitization regulations, social distancing, and conducting business without physical contact.
These changes took effect on April 29th and the very next day, May 1st, Wisconsin State Parks were allowed to reopen. Slowly but surely restrictions may lift, as the number of daily new virus cases decline for fourteen consecutive days. This is the guideline Governor Evers has set to start in the next step to open more of Wisconsin. The schools may or may not fall in this guideline, as the state has notified the schools of the orders stating; gatherings of ten or more will most likely be in place until August and then gatherings of up to fifty will be allowed. This would make virtual schooling still in place for the fall semester as almost all schools cater to many more than fifty students at a time.
