Indoor service for bars, restaurants resumes in Minnesota
ST. PAUL, Minn. – Beginning today (Jan. 11) Minnesota bars and restaurants may resume indoor service with limits, 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 ban on restaurant dining in response to soaring cases in November.
Indoor service can resume 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.
