Partial Reopening as MN Gov’s “Stay at Home” Order Expires


(Learfield News Service) Retail stores and other main street businesses in Minnesota can re-open today (Monday) if they have a social distancing plan and operate at 50 percent occupancy, as the Governor’s stay-at-home order expires.

Walz says family-and-friend gatherings of 10 people or less can resume, and his administration is preparing guidance on how to safely re-open bars, restaurants, barbershops, salons and fitness centers beginning June 1st. But Walz stresses that to avoid an overwhelming peak in COVID-19, Minnesotans must double-down on efforts at social distancing, wear masks when out shopping, and continue to work from home if they can.

He says, don’t gather in large groups, whether at a backyard barbecue or a religious service.
