Wisconsin indoor gathering restrictions back on hold

MADISON, WI-- In another rule reversal, a Wisconsin appeals court judge put a hold on Gov. Tony Evers’ restrictions on indoor public gatherings.

The ruling from the 3rd District Court of Appeals pauses the Democratic governor's effort to control the spread of coronavirus.

Evers’ administration issued an order on Oct. 6 limiting indoor public gatherings across the state to 25% of a building’s capacity or 10 people in places without an occupancy limit.

A judge put it on hold while considering a challenge from the Tavern League of Wisconsin.

On Monday, a Barron County judge upheld the order, putting the restrictions back in place.

Now, it's back on hold, pending appeal.

A Superior restaurant owner told KBJR6 this back and forth was one of the more frustrating aspects of the pandemic, as he struggled to keep staff trained on the latest state regulations.
