Evers to Issue

In fact, business leaders have suggested that it is imperative to slow the growth of the disease and that the state cease all non-essential business statewide.

According to a JSOnline report from Monday morning, Evers made the decision to call the order a "stay at home" order opposed to a "shelter in place" order to dissuade citizens from thinking that martial law was being imposed. "We've taken important steps, but folks, time is of the essence".

Evers said almost 13,000 restaurants across the state have been ordered to close except for delivery and pickup services.

The order from Evers, which he is calling "safer at home", follows his orders to close the state's K-12 schools and various businesses, including bars, restaurants and hair salons.

He did not provide details on what the order might mean for construction companies, manufacturing, or hotels.

"Safer at Home" must allow essential health workers and health-supporting industries - including all those supporting and providing care and critical supply chain in hospitals, clinics, health centers, nursing homes, long-term care facilities, blood banks and many others - to continue helping our hospitalized patients and the frail elderly.
