Judge Extends Injunction that Prevents Naming Businesses with COVID-19 Positive Employees

A Waukesha County judge agreed to continue blocking Gov. Tony Evers’ administration from┬áreleasing the names of businesses┬áthat have at least two employees test positive for COVID-19.

Online court records show that a hearing in the case has been scheduled for Nov. 30 at 2 p.m.

The records do not specify for how long the court’s injunction will last, only that it was extended Wednesday during a motion hearing.

Waukesha County Judge Lloyd V. Carter first blocked the Evers administration from releasing the information on Oct. 1.

The initial order extended for five days.

Several media outlets have filed requests for the information, and Evers said that the state intended to comply with their requests.
