Gov. Evers Announces Expanded Opportunities for Certain Nonessential Businesses

Non-essential businesses like dog groomers, small engine repair shops, upholstery businesses, and others can safely open
Post Date:04/27/2020 2:59 PM

Gov. Evers announced expanding allowed operations for nonessential businesses, providing more opportunities for businesses to get back to work in a safe and responsible way. 

The Emergency Order #34 titled Interim Order to Turn the Dial, signed today by Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm, allows nonessential businesses to do curbside drop-off of goods and animals. This will allow businesses like dog groomers, small engine repair shops, upholstery businesses, and others to safely open. Today's order also allows outdoor recreational rentals, such as boats, golf carts, kayaks, ATVs, and other similar recreational vehicles. Additionally, automatic or self-service car washes would be able to operate. All of these businesses must operate free of contact with customers by providing payment options online or over the phone, enact proper disinfecting practices, and operations must be able to be performed by one staff member.

If businesses have questions, they can reach out to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation or the City of Wauwatosa Economic Development department.
