Governor Tony Evers is turning to the Republican-led legislature to develop a plan to fight the coronavirus outbreak. The governor’s Safer at Home plan was struck down by the state Supreme Court yesterday, opening the door for businesses statewide to reopen.
The governor says he’s disappointed in the court’s decision but leaders have to step up to do what they can to protect the health and safety of the state.
In the meantime, several counties and cities in Northeast Wisconsin have extended Safer at Home orders despite the State Supreme Court striking down the statewide policy.
Brown and Winnebago counties have extended the order until May 20th, as have Appleton and De Pere. Menasha and Outagamie counties are keeping the Safer at Home order in place until further notice.
Meanwhile Fond du Lac County says all business can open immediately.
