During the COVID-19 pandemic, many bars & restaurants have been required by law to limit their capacity or utilize outdoor space if social distancing is not achievable inside. In spring of 2020, under Governor Tony Evers’ “Safer at Home” order, bars were required to shut down from the end of March through May. As life begins to settle back to a new normal, many bars are adapting to the change. Many establishments have withstood the trial, but for others this was last call.
