On Monday, May 11, Gov. Tony Evers loosened up his Safer at Home order — the order restricting movement, gatherings and non-essential businesses because of the COVID-19 pandemic — by what Evers called “another turn of the dial.” This allows smaller retail businesses to have up to five customers in their confines, following social distancing guidelines. 

After Emergency Order 36 was issued Monday morning, Missy Hughes, chief executive officer of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), said later at an online briefing that the new order is aimed at smaller retail operations with less than 20 employees, representing just over 14,000 businesses in the state and impacting approximately 90,000 retail workers.
