The city of Racine is keeping its "stay home" order in place because it has one of the fastest-growing rates of COVID-19 in the country.
The city has had more than 400 cases in two weeks.
It may never be business as usual again on Main Street in downtown Racine. Some customers are taking every precaution possible.
"Masks, gloves, hand sanitizer you get home you wipe everything down," Jamie Mattek said.
"Are you guys ready for businesses to reopen?" WISN 12 News reporter Hillary Mintz asked.
"Yes, (I) just miss talking to other people and shopping," Lisa Ramirez said.
Racine, now nearing 600 coronavirus cases, kept their stay home order in place in spite of the Supreme Court ruling.
"We've been listed as one of the fastest growing coronavirus case communities per capita in the country. This is a serious problem,” Racine Mayor Cory Mason said.
Until May 26, the small businesses can be open but with restrictions like customer limits.
"I think a lot of these businesses, they do have safety measures in place that are helping keep sanitation and all that good stuff, like in here they have arrows so there's only one direction that you can go in, so I’m OK with it as long as they're not too crowded," Lorenzo Santos said.
While some customers are enjoying getting back to shopping on Main Street, others said it's too soon.
"I think it's too soon, especially in Racine and Kenosha. The numbers just keep going up and up and up," Mattek said,
"I’m very mixed about it. I want everybody to be safe first. That's my No. 1 concern. Safety first always," Georgia Herrera said.
Starting Monday Racine will have free community testing. The National Guard will give the tests at festival hall from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
