(WKOW) -- The State Supreme court struck down Wisconsin’s Safer at Home order in its entirety, ordering all future orders to go through the Legislature.
Following the announcement, the Tavern League of Wisconsin issued bars "open immediately."
The Tavern League is a trade association advocating for bars across Wisconsin. It also encouraged establishments to follow Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation guidelines, which includes face masks and gloves for employees, and social distancing when possible.
According to Tweets from Nick's Bar in Platteville, the location reopened Wednesday evening and was severing at least two dozen people within the hour.
According to our ABC affiliate in Milwaukee, WISN, The Iron Hog Saloon in the Town of Port Washington opened its doors Wednesday.
Customers were inside the bar without masks.
