Today Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services issued Emergency Order No. 3 limiting public gatherings.  As written, the Order is effective until November 6.  The order limits “public gatherings” to no more than 25% of the total occupancy limits for a room or building established by the local municipality. “Public gathering” means an “indoor event, convening or collection of individuals that is open to the public.”  The phrase “open to the public” is further defined as to include, but not be limited to,  “rooms within a business location, store, or facility that allows members of the public to enter” and “ticketed events where tickets are available for free or for purchase…” More importantly, places that are NOT “open to the public” and therefore NOT covered by the Order, include “office spaces, manufacturing plants, and other facilities that are accessible only by employees  or other authorized personnel; invitation-only events that exclude uninvited guests, and private residences….”
