After the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down the governor’s stay-at-home order, restrictions on businesses were immediately lifted and Wisconsinites flocked to bars for the first time in weeks. 

City officials for Wisconsin’s two largest cities, Milwaukee and Madison, said their cities will continue to enforce stay-at-home orders through May 26th while bars in Green Bay are open to the public.

Nick’s Bar in Platteville, near the Illinois and Iowa border, posted a photo of their full bar on Wednesday evening. 

The owner of Iron Hog Saloon announced on Facebook that they are open for business, “I need to not only make sure I can keep making a living but I need to make sure my employees and there families can as well.”

There are no state guidelines for wearing masks at bars or restaurants. Bars like the Iron Hog Saloon are encouraging customers to wear a mask if they want to and to stay home if they are concerned about the virus.
