At the MCC, our first priority is always the health and safety of our guests and team members. The MCC is following the recommendations and guidelines set by the Minnesota Department of Health, the Governor of Minnesota and the Mayor of Minneapolis on ways to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.
- Minnesota Governor Tim Walz issued Executive Order 21-01 on Jan. 6, allowing indoor meeting venues to reopen with groups of up to 25% occupant capacity, not to exceed more than 150 people, so long as social distancing and face-covering requirements are met. As the MCC is comprised of separate compartments, and many compartments have their own rated occupancy limit with designated exits/entrances, each room/compartment meeting those guidelines may hold 25% of its occupancy, not to exceed 150 people. The maximum number of patrons for the entire venue (counting all self-contained spaces) may not exceed 750. Outdoor events and entertainment are allowed at 25% capacity, with a maximum capacity of 250 people.
- Walz's Executive Order 21-01 also allows indoor dining at restaurants and bars at 50% capacity; increases maximum capacity for fitness centers; allows indoor events and entertainment venues to reopen at 25% capacity; increases capacity totals for outdoor events and entertainment; and allows wedding receptions and other private parties to resume with limits. Indoor and outdoor social gatherings remain limited to two and three households, respectively. There are additional guidelines for youth and organized sports, pools, and places of worship.

- The Minnesota Department of Health’s COVID-19 Community Testing Site at the Minneapolis Convention Center remains open to the public.
- When inside the MCC, individuals are required to cover their nose and mouth with a mask or cloth face covering, per CDC guidance.
