The Pabst Theater Group Joins Milwaukee Businesses in Calling for a City Mandated Mask Requirement

July 13 / 2020

We, along with over 100 (and growing) Milwaukee restaurants and businesses, have joined together and written a letter (below) to Mayor Tom Barrett and Common Council President Cavalier Johnson calling on them to require that masks be worn by patrons and workers in public spaces including stores, theaters, museums, restaurants and bars (while not consuming food or beverages) to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  The health of our staff and patrons is our top priority as we look to invite the public back.

Additional Milwaukee businesses interested in representation are encouraged to email or visit  

Individuals can sign a petition in favor of a Milwaukee mask requirement here


UPDATE: On Monday, July 13, local businesses and organizations sent a follow-up letter was sent to the Milwaukee Common Council and Mayor Tom Barrett asking them to enact the “MKE Cares” ordinance, a city-wide masking policy, prior to the vote on Monday afternoon. The follow-up letter is posted below.
