WISCONSIN -- Governor Tony Evers has relaxed even more restrictions on some non-essential businesses under the state's Safer at Home order.

Governor Evers is now allowing non-essential businesses to do curbside drop off of goods and animals.

With these adjustments, businesses such as dog groomers, small engine repairs shops, and upholstery businesses will be able to reopen.

The new order also allows outdoor recreational rentals such as ATV's, boats, golf karts, kayaks, and other similar vehicles. Automatic and self-service car washes will also now be allowed to reopen.

All of these businesses, however, are required to operate without any physical contact with customers. Online or over-the-phone payment options must be made available, and they must enact proper disinfecting practices.

"This order means that every business across our state can do things like deliveries, mailings, curbside pick-up and drop-off, and it's an important step in making sure that while folks are staying safer at home, they can also continue to support small businesses across our state," said Governor Evers.

These new adjustments go into effect Wednesday, April 29.
