Door County Sherifft Tammy Sternard, along with the Sturgeon Bay Police and district attorney, have recently clarified what is meant by “essential travel” in the governor’s “Safer at Home” order. As they explain, essential travel is any travel related to essential activities, government functions, or non-essential business’ minimum basic operations. Also considered essential is travel to care for elderly, minors, dependents, persons with disabilities, or vulnerable persons. There is also travel to or from educational institutions for receiving learning materials, meals, or any related services. There is travel to return to a place of residence from outside the jurisdiction, travel required by law enforcement or court order, including to transport children in a custody agreement. Lastly, it is considered essential travel for non-residents to return to their place of residence outside Wisconsin.
