Gov. Tony Evers announced via Twitter today that he has directed the state Department of Health Services to ban gatherings of 50 or more people. 

The order exempts infrastructure and services such as grocery stores, food pantries, childcare centers, pharmacies and hospitals. 

The guv's office didn't immediately respond to calls seeking comment on how the order would impact bars, restaurants and other private businesses. His tweets also didn't indicate how long the ban will last. The guv tweeted more details would be announced at a 1:30 p.m. media briefing. 

"This isn't a decision I made lightly and we understand this will have an impact on Wisconsin workers, families, businesses and communities, but keeping folks safe and healthy has to be our highest priority," Evers tweeted.
