Minnesota Governor Tim Walz ordered a partial, temporary closure of bars, restaurants, entertainment venues, and other attractions earlier this week.
Walz’s order, signed Monday afternoon, closes restaurants and bars to dine-in customers. He also ordered the temporary closure of other places of public accommodation and amusement, including theaters, museums, fitness centers, and community clubs.
The measure will go into effect at 5 p.m. Tuesday and will last until March 27 at 5 p.m.
Delivery and curbside takeout services are permitted and should continue to observe the community mitigation strategies recommended by the Minnesota Department of Health.
