Minnesota Governor Tim Walz's Stay Safe Plan provides a set of phases for the safe reopening in a number of settings. Minnesota is currently in Phase III. Groups of up to 250 people with social distancing in place are currently allowed to meet.
Governor Walz has issued Executive Order 20-81, requiring people in Minnesota to wear a face covering in all public indoor spaces and businesses, unless alone. Additionally, workers are required to wear a face covering when working outdoors in situations where social distancing cannot be maintained. 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.
All employers of Minneapolis businesses that are spaces of public accommodation shall require their employees to wear a cloth face covering whenever employees have face-to-face contact with the public.
