Not Wisconsin related, but another suggestion I've heard - if you're in need of some emergency child care - contact your favorite restaurant and see if they'd recommend any of their former wait staff.  Every little bit helps.

Nice ideas here about patronizing local places that are now takeout only, the meal kits, and gift cards for future use.

Yesterday, I stopped by a local coffee place that is normally packed but now stuck with takeout only. The co-owner is a friend, and was very appreciative that I stopped by. After I bought my coffee, I decided to get a $50 gift card for future use.

Little things we can do to help out....

I drove 20 minutes to get an omelette from my favorite breakfast place this morning. Gift card is a great idea too.

We door-dashed the local Mexican place last night.

We've been doing this as well. Learned two of our favorites, sister restaurants La Merenda and Engine Co are shuttering until this is over after today. Did the same for Valentines coffee. Gift cards for local places we often get Xmas gifts too.

Just hope they can survive.

Daycare teachers too, if the center has been shut down or hours  cut back.

The Tandem is one of my favorite restaurants. Got my coworkers gift cards as we’d talked about it before. They were doing carry out but they’ve gone to only free meals for those in need. They have a donation link on their website to make those available. They’ve also laid off most of their employees so they can collect unemployment and they’re making it a free grocery store for those employees. Love their mission and what they do for the community. And incredible chicken (and breakfast burritos).

Doc's is shutting it down.  Four locations, 250+ employees, son-in-law delivering lots of produce to St. Ben's Community Meal Program (f/k/a "the soup kitchen") and the Rescue Mission.

Milwaukee, Madison, Mokena, IL and Dyer, IN

Curbside pick up at the Milwaukee location was active, but without liquor sales and Fiserv events, the numbers weren't making any sense.  Committed to reopening.   Thank you to all the folks on this board that supported the cause. 

[This is not my business, but that of my son-in-law, who is married to my pregnant daughter, all of whom are healthy]

Didn’t know you were doc...had ms II downtown Milwaukee last summer?  Great food!!  Hang in there man and we Should make it our unofficial ms headquarters

The owners of La Merenda and Engine Co No. 3 are Peter and Sonia Sandroni. Great people. Peter is an MU grad and all things MU Rah Rah. They met in Atlanta when he moved there (after he worked briefly for MU) to help with his aunt and uncle's restaurant in Decatur, GA. Sonia is from Bogota, Columbia and went to school there. (Pontificia Universidad Javeriana.) Peter also used to GM the Bongo Room in Chicago in a past life.

Evers just issued a two week shelter in place order - but he's calling it "safer at home" order.   ::)

Governor Tony Evers
@GovEvers
Workers providing essential care or services in our communities will be allowed to continue to travel to and from work. That includes folks like healthcare professionals, grocers, family caregivers, among other people whose work is critical for folks across our state.

My guess is police and National Guard will be enforcing with large fines.  Or we are expected to self police somewhat.

Indeed, my company sent out a note that roughly said "We're essential.  If you want a letter you can show people, we will provide it."

IMO, I have a hard time imagining our products as essential.

They aren't going to pull people over or anything like that.  And businesses will be able to have their "essential functions" covered as well.  We will see.

That's why I think it's silly to even announce it. It's no different than the suggestion for social distancing

I find this map interesting:

https://mcoem.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/018eedbe075046779b8062b5fe1055bf

Very few infections south of I-94.  Very few infections in the suburbs.

A moderate smattering of cases in the central city but the highest caseload in the near, and far NW section of MKE.    I think I'd identify that area as a middle-class African American area -- although that's just a stereotype, not saying it's one race.   (The far NW section is an enclave for police, fire, teacher, and other MKE public workers.)

Well it forces retail businesses to close.  It puts more pressure on people to work from home.

Anecdotally, it seems like many businesses are going to fall in essential. I think most manufacturing will fight to say they are to keep running.

What about the trades. Landscaping, construction, masonry, welding,painting, woodwork. Etc. Are these essential? Doesnt even matter almost all of these will continue to operate anyways

NvM just read that big ass list
 So basically everything is essential essentially
