Many businesses which have been closed for weeks because of COVID-19 could open again within days.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is allowing non-essential retail stores to open, as long as they serve no more than five customers at a time.
Downtown Mainstreet, Inc. director Robin Moses in La Crosse says store owners will need to follow the social distancing standards before they re-open.
Most businesses in downtown La Crosse closed on March 16th under the stay-at-home order issued by Evers.
The general order remains in place through May 26th.
Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos called for all businesses statewide to be opened.
