Gov. Tony Evers Lifts Select Business Restrictions

Gov. Tony Evers lifted some business restrictions April 27, allowing nonessential businesses to do curbside drop-off of goods and animals. The order allows businesses such as dog groomers, small-engine repair shops, upholstery businesses and others to safely open. 

The order also applies to outdoor recreational rentals such as boats, golf carts, kayaks, ATVs and other similar recreational vehicles; and to automatic and self-service car washes. Such businesses must be able to operate free of customer contact by providing payment options online or by phone, enact proper disinfecting practices, and be able to perform operations with one staff member.

Golf courses have also opened. Construction and landscaping businesses may do aesthetic or optional work if it is performed by a single person. Public libraries may provide curbside pickup of books and other materials; and arts-and-crafts stores may offer expanded curbside pickup of face-mask-making materials.
