The Wisconsin state Capitol building is closing to the public beginning Thursday morning.
The announcement came in a press release from the Department of Administration sent Wednesday evening.
The closure is slated to begin at 8:00 a.m. and continue "until further notice."
"The State Capitol building is a symbol of the strength and determination of the Wisconsin spirit, as well as a physical reminder of the generations before us who have also faced the need to make challenging decisions in periods of uncertainty," said Department of Administration Secretary Joel Brennan. "Although the decision to close the building was difficult, the health of our communities and loved ones is the priority we must all be focused on."
If the Legislature or Supreme Court convenes, the Capitol will reopen to the public, the release said.
