Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation Releases Reopening Guidelines
On May 8, 2020, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) published a series of general and industry-specific guidelines to assist businesses with reopening under Governor Tony Evers’s “Badger Bounce Back” plan. Guidelines are available for many industries, including agriculture, construction, entertainment/amusement, gym and fitness centers, hair and nail salons, hospitality/lodging, manufacturing, professional services, public facilities, restaurants, retail, transportation, outdoor gatherings, outdoor recreation, and warehouse/wholesale trades.

Across multiple guidelines, the WEDC—a public-private agency—identified common modifications to practices, policies, and physical accommodations to safely reopen. For example, each guideline encourages businesses to increase cleaning and sanitizing practices, and have employees practice social distancing and use face masks or cloth face coverings. The guidelines repeatedly direct businesses to adhere to the guidelines and recommendations published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
