Gov. Tim Walz’s Stay Safe Order encourages Minnesotans to stay close to home but allows gatherings of friends and family of 10 people or less, if proper social distancing measures—like staying 6 feet apart and wearing a mask—are taken. The order also further opens retail stores and other Main Street businesses if they have a preparedness plan and operate at 50 percent occupancy.
The Stay Safe Order is a cautious step forward, as we all continue to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and continue to protect and support those most at risk and workers, who are on the frontlines of this pandemic.
