MILWAUKEE — Since the "Safer at Home" order went into effect, the Milwaukee Police Department has arrested 133 people for violating the order.

The order, in effect until May 26, requires that all Wisconsinites stay in their homes except for essential trips or to get outdoors. Anyone who violates this order could be cited by police or even arrested.

The order went into effect on Wednesday, March 25, and since then, the Milwaukee Police Department has had to arrest 133 people.

These violations could include doing things like gathering in large groups or crowding public places.

While some of the restrictions have been lifted with the Safer at Home order extension, Wisconsinites should still stay home as much as possible and follow social distancing rules.
