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.
Governor Walz issued Executive Order 21-01 on Jan. 6, modifying COVID-19 restrictions imposed under previous executive orders. This most recent order allows indoor events and entertainment venues to reopen at 25% capacity; increases capacity totals for outdoor events and entertainment; allows indoor dining at restaurants and bars at 50% capacity; increases maximum capacity for fitness centers; 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. For more information, go here.
Governor Walz issued Executive Order 20-81 on July 25, 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.
