CUDAHY — The Cudahy Health Department has withdrawn its local safer at home order after receiving legal guidance, meaning businesses can reopen immediately.

Cudahy issued its own order after the supreme court overturned Governor Evers' Safer at Home Order extension. They've now revoked that order.

“The Supreme Court’s order caused a great deal of confusion and uncertainty that has left us and others across the state struggling to determine how to abide by the ruling while continuing to protect the public’s safety... With the varying guidance and more time to review best practices moving forward, together we’ve determined that we will withdraw our order and instead RELY on guidance and recommendations, rather than requirements," said Mayor Tom Pavlic.

Now, the community has released guidelines on how businesses should look to protect their employees once open.

They have released a document specifically for restaurants and bar owners who wish to open, as one as a general document for all business types, which is below.
