Governor Evers’ Interim Order to “Turn the Dial”

 blog1 - Buelow Vetter Buikema Olson & Vliet

Today, April 27, 2020, Governor Evers issued another Emergency Order on the heels of his April 16, 2020 Safer-at-Home extension and his Badger Bounce Back Order of April 20, 2020. The Badger Bounce Back Order outlined a plan to “turn the dial down” on the Safer-at-Home Order. The Order issued today relaxes some restrictions currently in place.  It goes into effect at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 and remains in effect until the duration of the Safer-at-Home Order.

We previously wrote Client Alerts on the original Safer-at-Home Order and its extension, so please be sure to check your email inbox regarding those. If you did not receive an email, please contact your Buelow Vetter attorney.

The following areas of the Order should be noted:

  • Minimum Basic Operations now include customer curbside drop off of goods or animals for the purpose of having those goods or animals serviced, repaired, or cared for by the business, subject to the following: 1) when performing these services, there is a limit of one person in a room or confined space at a time; 2) the services must be paid for online or by telephone; and 3) the drop off and pick up of the goods or animals serviced must be scheduled ahead of time.
  • Minimum Basic Operations now include rental of recreational equipment for Outdoor Recreational activities such as canoes, paddle boats, golf carts, etc. Rented equipment must be cleaned after each use. In his previous Order regarding the Safer-at-Home extension, Governor Evers indicated golf carts could not be used despite golf courses reopening.
  • Entirely automatic and self-service car washes may now be opened for service.
  • The Emergency Safer-at-Home Orders and the Badger Bounce Back remain in effect.


  • Nonessential businesses which are now able to operate under this Order should review the original Safer-at-Home Order and its Extension on the Minimum Basic Operations allowed. Consult your legal counsel should you need advice;
  • Continue to adhere to the social distancing requirements in your establishment and at your place of residence; and
  • Continue to follow the Department of Health Services and CDC guidelines.
