April 24, 2020 – Washington Co., WI – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) has a strategy to open up businesses across Washington County and the state of Wisconsin. Data below is from WMC.
Wisconsin is ready to get back to business. Much of the state’s economy has been shut down since March 25, when Gov. Tony Evers’ Safer at Home order went into effect. At the time, the governor took swift action to protect the lives of Wisconsinites. The time-frame was meant to cover two 14-day incubation periods to drastically slow the spread of COVID-19. With the governor’s initial Safer at Home order expiring at 8AM on April 24, it is now time to also protect livelihoods.
To do this, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) – the combined state chamber, manufacturers’ association and safety council – is releasing this plan to get Back to Business. It is designed to strategically open Wisconsin businesses based on a number of risk factors and offers employers a clear vision for when and how they can begin to operate, once again. The Back to Business plan was developed with input from a diverse group of stakeholders, including those in business, government and the medical community. Additionally, it draws on best practices and recommendations from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
