Gov. Tony Evers declared a public health emergency on March 12, 2020, in response to a growing number of cases of COVID-19 in Wisconsin.

MADISON, Wis. - The Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down Gov. Tony Evers' coronavirus stay-at-home order Wednesday, ruling that his administration overstepped its authority when it extended it for another month without consulting legislators.

The Tavern League of Wisconsin swiftly posted the news on its website, telling members, "You can OPEN IMMEDIATELY!"
