What does a “Stay-at-Home” order really do? What are considered essential businesses and operations?
That is what the City of Milwaukee is detailing in a nine-page order from the Health Department provided to WTMJ Monday evening.
The order goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
The purpose of the order is to get as many people to self-isolate as possible to slow the spread of COVID-19. As of Monday evening, the City of Milwaukee had 157 people test positive for the virus.
