Governor Evers “Safer at Home” Order Overruled by Wisconsin Supreme Court

 Allows Golf Courses to go back to Pre-Order status

 
Understand that while the Governors Order has been deemed invalid, there likely will be state guidelines coming in the near future.  Until then, it is up to local authorities should they wish to put guidelines in place. 

Some counties may not issue any guidelines. Some entities that have already instituted restrictions are Dane, Milwaukee and Brown Counties and the cities of Racine and Milwaukee.

It is nearly impossible for the GCOW keep up with everything across the state so I would encourage you to be proactive to know what is allowed in your city or county.  If you think you should be allowed to do something and your city or county prohibits it, reach out to your local health department and try to explain why it may be done safely.   
We would like to remind you that because the order was lifted doesn't mean we shouldn't continue to do those things that have kept your employees and customers safe. Keeping Social Distancing and monitoring the number of people in your clubhouses/restaurants is wise, however now the decision is up to you.

Many of the on-course restrictions like no rakes, water coolers, raised cups are a wise thing to continue and some of the precautions you have taken could be the “New Normal”.  

In short, the court decision immediately lifts restrictions on employers and businesses including Golf Courses.  However, local governments may still issue their own orders and will require a county-by-county analysis.   

 

I will email you all again whenever new information is received. My office number is (414) 443-3568 and cell is (414) 520-5964
