Guidance for Reopening the Hospitality Industry

Minnesota

  • Reopening website: https://staysafe.mn.gov/

  • NEW: January 7, 2021:

  • Guidance for Restaurant and Bars

    • Restaurants can open to 50% capacity with a maximum of 150 indoor and 150 outdoor, using 6ft social distancing; maximum party size of 6

    • Bars can open to 50% capacity with a maximum of 150 indoor and 150 outdoor, using 6ft social distancing; maximum party of 2 seated at the bar

    • Everyone must be seated at all times

    • Reservations are required

    • Establishments must be closed from 10pm-4am

    • The mask mandate remains in place for everyone

  • Guidance for Indoor Venues (Seated | Non-seated)

    • There are two separate guidance documents for both seated and non-seated indoor events (seated vs. non-seated). Event operators should read both of these documents very closely to ensure they fully understand their obligations. 

      • “Large venue” capacity. Earlier today, we indicated that maximum capacity for “large venue” events is 750. This pertains only to seated events (see page 8 of the indoor seated events guidance) that have “self-contained spaces” which can each accommodate 150 people per space at 25%, with a maximum of 750 people within the property. This could be a movie theatre or a convention center, for example under certain conditions.

  • Guidance for Safe Celebrations and Events (updated link pending)

    • We noted a discrepancy in the guidance document and are awaiting clarification from MDH

  • Guidance for Pools, Including Water Parks (updated link pending)

    • Pools, including Water Parks, are permitted to open to 25% capacity, with a maximum of 150 people

  • Guidance on Gyms, Studios and Fitness Centers (updated link pending)

    • Fitness Centers are permitted to open to 25% capacity using social distancing of 9ft, with a maximum of 150 people overall and 25 people in a class
