Non-essential businesses to close under Evers' order

More details are to come when he signs the dotted line on Tuesday, but Governor Tony Evers has indicated that he will order non-essential businesses in Wisconsin to close to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Area schools are already closed until further notice and many government buildings and businesses are either shuttered or are under tighter restrictions. Neighboring states Illinois and Michigan have already ordered their residents to “shelter at home” for at least the next two weeks. In Wisconsin, close to 400 people have tested positive for COVID-19 this month.
