MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has ordered a statewide ban on all gatherings of more than 10 people.

All bars and restaurants are also closed, except for delivery and pickup orders.

He announced the new limits Tuesday in an attempt to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Evers also extended the closure of all public and private K-12 schools indefinitely.

He also said he would be talking with legislative leaders on Wednesday about an aid package.

The number of confirmed cases in Wisconsin increased from 47 to 72 in one day, and health officials are warning of shortages in testing equipment.
