Getting answers: How do I report a non-essential business that is still open?

Viewers are reaching out on social media about businesses that have remained open, even though they say those businesses are non-essential.

To report a business you believe should not be open, Gov. Evers' Safer at Home order instructs people to contact their local law enforcement agency.

A list of businesses that can remain open, a link to the full order and contact information if you want a clarification about your business, are HERE.

If people are worried about their work environment -- for instance, if you feel like it isn't safe -- then the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development says you should contact the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

OSHA's contact information is HERE.
