Gov. Tony Evers announced today he has ordered Health Services Secretary Andrea Palm to extend his stay-at-home order another month to May 26, though with some easing of past restrictions to allow certain activities to start up again.

That includes allowing public libraries to provide curb-side pickup and golf courses to open with some restrictions on scheduling and paying for tee times online or by phone only.

Still, the order directs public and private K-12 schools to remain closed for the rest of the school year and cancels extracurricular activities.

Evers first declared a public health emergency March 12, and that order expires May 11 without a joint resolution of the Legislature extending it. Still, Palm issued today’s order, citing powers granted to her under state law.
