More restrictions on businesses from Evers as COVID-19 cases rise
AP) Madison- Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has ordered the closure of all nail and hair salons, barbers, day spas, tattoo parlors, body art establishments and tanning facilities to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Evers ordered them closed as of 5 p.m. Friday.
Evers has already ordered all bars and restaurants to close, except for delivery or carry out options. He’s also ordered there to be no gatherings of more than 10 people at a time. Grocery stores can remain open.
Evers and state health officials say severe limitations are needed so the state’s hospitals and health care system don’t become overwhelmed trying to treat those who are sick. Health officials had no estimate on when hospital beds and medical supplies will no longer be able to meet demand.
The total number of confirmed cases was at 206 with three deaths as of Friday. The state’s first case was recorded on Feb. 5.
