Businesses in Eau Claire are reopening but city government will stay on emergency footing for almost another month.
The city council last night unanimously agreed to extend Eau Claire’s coronavirus emergency order til June 23rd. The order allows the city manager to suspend certain rules, it also means the city council can meet from home rather than in city council chambers.
When it comes to the latest case count, the number of people testing positive for the coronavirus is at its lowest point in nearly a week. Locally, Eau Claire is now over 100 cases.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday reported just 279 new cases in our state. DHS also reported almost 75 hundred negative cases. Yesterday was the fourth straight day of declining coronavirus numbers in Wisconsin.
