Know Before You Go: How to Be a Good Customer During COVID-19

As businesses in Minneapolis begin to reopen, everyone is taking precautions against the spread of COVID-19. It can be a confusing time for consumers with so many new rules and protocols to follow. But having an idea of what to expect when you go out and support our local businesses is an important step towards helping keep you and their employees safe and healthy–and keeping our beloved local businesses open.

1. Wear a Mask

The Governor of Minnesota has mandated that everyone in the state must wear a face mask in any public indoor space. This applies to individuals over the age of five. Children under age 2 years must not wear face coverings. Children between the ages of 2 and 5 years old are not required to wear face coverings, but are encouraged to wear a face covering when in public if they can do so reliably in compliance with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance. Persons who have medical or other health conditions, disabilities or mental health, developmental, or behavioral needs that make it difficult to tolerate wearing a face covering are exempt.

At restaurants, masks are required to be worn in waiting areas, whenever you are not seated at your table eating or drinking and when in restrooms.
