Due to quick action and many hours of communication with Gov. Tony Evers’ office, his cabinet agencies and GOP leadership, accounting services are now considered essential during Evers’ Safer at Home order.
On March 24, Evers directed Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm to issue the order that prohibits all nonessential travel, with some exceptions, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other professional businesses considered essential during this time include legal, insurance and real estate services. Under the order, these essential services shall, to the greatest extent possible, use technology to avoid meeting in person, including virtual meetings, teleconference and remote work (work from home).
Wisconsin CPAs can continue doing what they do best—serving their individual clients, businesses, units of government and the community, noted WICPA President & CEO Tammy Hofstede.
The order will remain in effect until 8 a.m. on Friday, April 24, or until the governor issues a superseding order.
