Another crazy week in our new COVID world! I was hoping that things would start to return to semi-normal by now, but, alas, no luck. I am fortunate to be able to do the majority of my work via computer, but, for businesses open to the public, things have once again changed locally.
A mask ordinance goes into effect today in the city of Milwaukee. Anyone over the age of three must wear a mask in buildings open to the public or in outdoor public spaces when within six feet of people who are not part of their own family or household.
This could have detrimental effects on local businesses who do not require patrons to wear masks. Fines for businesses range from $50 to $500, and officials could even shut down offending businesses.
The ordinance is expected to be challenged in court, so, as always, follow me on Instagram for the latest updates as soon as they are available. If you need help navigating the ever-changing legal landscape as it relates to this, or anything business related, I am here for you!
