March 25, 2020

Governor Evers issued FAQs to clarify portions of the Safer at Home Order that became effective at 8:00 a.m. today, March 25th. The FAQs address the most common questions sent to the Governor. A few of the highlights from the FAQs include:

  • Individuals do not need to carry documentation to leave their homes. Individuals are required to comply with the Order, but do not need special permission to leave home.
  • Essential Businesses and Operations do not need special documentation or certification (nor do their employees so long as it is done in compliance with the Order).
  • Restaurants may remain open for food take-out and delivery only, but no seating.
  • Hotels and motels may remain open so long as they follow the guidelines imposed on stores that sell groceries and medicine, restaurants, and bars.
  • Weddings and funerals can proceed as long as any gathering includes fewer than 10 people in a room or confined space.
  • All schools remain closed for instructional and extracurricular activities for the duration of the Safer at Home Order, except for facilitating virtual learning, essential government functions, and food distribution.
  • Individuals may still move or relocate from their current residence, as moving and relocation services are considered essential businesses under the Order.
  • If a local municipal order conflicts with the statewide order, individuals must follow the statewide order.
