MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota bars and restaurants may resume indoor service with limits starting today, as COVID-19 cases have been declining.
The eased restrictions returns bars and restaurants about to where they were before Gov. Tim Walz imposed a “pause” in response to soaring cases in November.
They can resume indoor service at 50% capacity but with 10 p.m. curfews and social distancing.
Movie theaters, bowling alleys and museums can reopen at 25% capacity.
Most venues must limit the number of people inside to no more than 150.
Hospitality Minnesota supported the loosened restrictions, which were announced last week.
