20 Apr Evers’ ‘Badger Bounce Back’ Plan Offers Roadmap For Reopening State Economy
Gov. Tony Evers on Monday laid out a plan to reopen the state economy in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has shuttered businesses and other facilities across Wisconsin.
The roadmap, called the Badger Bounce Back plan, follows guidance released last week by the White House for safely relaxing social distancing requirements.
The plan would allow Wisconsin businesses to reopen in several phases.
Phase one will allow gatherings of up to 10 people; restaurants to reopen with social distancing requirements; and will lift some restrictions on retailers. K-12 schools and child care centers would reopen at full capacity.
Phase two will allow gatherings of up to 50 people; restaurants to open at full capacity; bars to reopen with social distancing requirements; and colleges and technical schools to reopen.
Phase three will allow all businesses and gatherings to resume.
But by current guidelines, even phase one is weeks away at minimum, and phase three could be much longer.
