Restaurants, Bars, and Businesses
Current as of March 19 at 8:00 a.m.
Wis. Stat. § 252.02(3) requires compliance with the following rules:
1. Bars must remain closed at all times. The City interprets this to mean the doors must be locked with no one but owner/employees on site. Although “bar” is not defined in the order or state law, the city interprets that to mean any place with a Class B alcohol license that is NOT also one of the following:
o A hotel
o A restaurant (see #2 below for more details)
o A combination grocery store and tavern
o A combination novelty store and tavern
o A bowling center or recreation premises
o A club, society or lodge
o A movie theater
o A painting studio
2. There are special rules for restaurants. A restaurant is any place that has a restaurant license under Wis. Stat. 97.30, regardless of any other licenses it may have. Anyone who is open may need to produce a restaurant license. Here is how to distinguish between a bar and a restaurant:
o A restaurant has a license to serve food and might have a license to serve alcohol. It is still a restaurant with or without the alcohol license.
o A bar only has a license to serve alcohol and does not have a license to serve food.
Restaurants may stay open, but only to provide take-out or delivery of food and carryout of alcohol under these circumstances:
o No on-premises food or alcohol consumption
o No more than 9 people indoors at one time, including employees
o Everyone should remain 6 feet apart unless necessary to pay and receive product
o If the restaurant has a Class B license, it can sell beer and wine in closed containers for carry out.
§ Beer sales can only occur between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.
§ Wine sales can only occur between 6 a.m. and 12 a.m.
§ No intoxicating liquor (other than wine) may be sold in closed containers
o No buffets or self-service even for carryout/take-out
3. Schools must close for instructional and extracurricular activities (starting at 5:00 p.m. on March 18).
o This includes all private and public schools of all ages.
o The school may open for reasons unrelated to instruction or extracurriculars and need not comply with the 9-person limit if the purpose for opening is:
§ Medication pickup
§ Childcare services
§ Providing meals
§ Operating as a polling place
§ Similar high-need purposes
4. No public or private place may have a gathering of 10 or more people. This rule applies if 10 people are in a confined space or single room at the same time. That means up to 9 people may occupy a single room as long as they practice social distancing (staying 6 feet apart from each other), but only 9 people may attend a movie in a large theater. There is no limit for outdoor areas other than the social distancing rule that generally applies. There are places that do not have to comply with the 9-person limitation and instead just need to maintain social distancing:
o Mass transportation, including airports, busses, etc.
o Childcare facilities
§ Limited to up to 10 paid or unpaid staff on site
§ Limited to up to 50 children on site.
§ Adults must practice social distancing at all times.
o Government offices
o Food pantries
o Homeless shelters and day centers
o Any residential building or unit
o Retail establishments (gas stations, auto repair, department stores, etc.) as long as:
§ It’s not an indoor shopping mall
§ People usually are not within arms’ length of each other for more than 10 minutes
o Health care and treatment facilities
o Any location operating as a polling place
o Grocery stores
o Convenience stores
o Farmer’s markets
o The following places of employment
§ Office spaces
§ Industrial/manufacturing/processing/distribution work spaces
§ Job centers
