Although Wisconsin has no statewide or industry-specific requirements, Governor Evers’ November 10, 2020State of Wisconsin Executive Order “strongly encouraged” all businesses to take a number of precautions in response to the COVID-19 resurgence, including:

Wisconsin agencies have also issued some guidance to help employers during the COVID-19 resurgence, including the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s industry-specific guidance and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ guidance for Preventing and Managing COVID-19 Outbreaks in the Workplace.

Local communities and municipalities are permitted to enact requirements and several Wisconsin municipalities have issued their own emergency orders, including Madison & Dane County, City of Milwaukee, Eau Claire City, and the City of Wausau. Accordingly, Wisconsin employers should consult with counsel to verify that they are in compliance with all current state, city/local and county-wide orders.
