Indoor service for bars, restaurants resumes in Minnesota

Local News

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota bars and restaurants may resume indoor service with limits starting Monday, 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.
