Capitol To Reopen To The Public On Monday

(Madison) The Wisconsin state Capitol opens to the public Monday after being closed since March of last year because of the pandemic. Governor Tony Evers’ office announced Friday that the Capitol will be opened at one entrance for limited hours, weekdays from 8am to 4:30pm. Previously, the building had been open until 6pm and also had weekend hours. There will be no public tours though the tour desk will be manned. Capitol staff, including those who work for the governor, lawmakers and the Supreme Court, have been on site for several months. There are state office buildings around the Capitol that remain closed, but Evers has indicated that a return to work is planned this summer.
