MADISON — School buildings will stay closed through the end of the year and most nonessential businesses will remain shut down through Memorial Day due to a new statewide order from Gov. Tony Evers, although some parts of Safer at Home have been loosened.
Evers announced the new order Thursday, which goes into effect on April 24 and closes public and private school buildings through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, while easing some restrictions on businesses like golf courses, craft stores and libraries.
"I know a lot of folks are concerned about the effects this will have on workers and businesses across the state and believe me no one wants to reopen our economy more than I do," Evers said in a media call Thursday.
When it comes to "reopening the economy," Wisconsin is one of seven states (along with Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky) that now have their governors working "in close coordination to reopen the economy in the Midwest region," Mich. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Thursday.
With the extension, the order will remain in place until May 26 — with the new changes going into effect on April 24.Read more: https://journaltimes.com/news/local/schools-to-remain-closed-rest-of-school-year-safer-at-home-order-extended-to-may/article_9c3ec512-b8ef-5390-a06c-d43ec5986fac.html#tracking-source=home-top-story
This is horseshit. Ill go mad if I have to stay cooped up for another 5-1/2 weeks. Constantly washing my hands is a symptom of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. I believe that there are many others like me. We will rise up and overthrow the government. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
