Moving Milwaukee Forward Business updatE

MKE Cares Mask Ordinance

On July 13, 2020, the Milwaukee Common Council adopted an ordinance requiring that all persons wear face coverings in public spaces, indoors and outdoors. The ordinance went into effect Thursday, July 16, 2020 and will be enforced throughout the duration of the Moving Milwaukee Forward health and safety order. We are currently in phase 4. This mask policy refers to any person leaving their private dwelling/property to wear a mask at all times, this includes work.

Masks are required per the MKE Cares mask ordinance, which went into effect on July 16, 2020 for the city of Milwaukee and the rest of the State on August 1, 2020. Please report business violations of the mask laws and order 4.1. by calling 414-286-3674 or emailing cehadmin@milwaukee.gov. Complaints will remain anonymous.

Deadline is Approaching Fast! September 15, 2020

Restaurants and bars will be required to submit a safety plan and a MHD Risk Assessment Tool by 11:59 p.m. CT on September 15, 2020. Documents should be sent to cehadmin@milwaukee.gov with the subject line “COVID SAFETY PLAN: [insert name and address].” All plans will be reviewed in the order that they have been received, and approval may take several days. Once a business has been approved, the operator will receive a certificate or seal from the Milwaukee Health Department indicating that they may operate safely.

We will provide weekly business updates on Fridays to keep the community apprised of the status of businesses that have submitted/approved plans. As of today, we have received a total of 300 plans. The following plans have been approved and the remainder are under review.
