Confused about the various state, county, and city safer-at-home orders? You shouldn’t be! We have a quick breakdown of Milwaukee-area orders HERE!

But hold on! There’s an update! Thursday afternoon, Mayor Tom Barrett announced the immediate enactment of a new safer-at-home order for the City of Milwaukee. The new safer-at-home order replaces the city’s previous safer-at-home order that was superseded by the state’s safer-at-home order in March, but which went back into effect after the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down the state’s safer-at-home order on Wednesday. EVERYBODY GOT THAT?

So what’s different about this new safer-at-home order? In short, it’s similar to the safer-at-home order currently in effect for suburban Milwaukee County in that it allows spas, salons, and barbershops to reopen. Bars and restaurants in the City of Milwaukee remain closed to in-person business. Like the city’s previous safer-at-home order, the new safer-at-home order has no expiration date. The suburban county safer-at-home order, however, has a May 21 expiration date. EVERYBODY GOT THAT?

Anyway, you can read Milwaukee’s new safer-at-home order that replaces its old safer-at-home order that was superseded by the state’s safer-at-home order but which went back into effect after the state’s safer-at-home order was struck down HERE.
