The new "normal" is hitting Minnesota.  All restaurants, bars, health clubs, movie theaters and many other businesses are being ordered to close in the state of Minnesota by the Governor Tim Walz.

At a press conference he says, "We must take decisive action to curb the spread of this pandemic and protect the health and safety of Minnesotans," therefore, Governor Walz signed Executive Order 20-04 ordering all bars, food courts and restaurants close to dine in guests as of 5:00 p.m. Tuesday and remains in effect until March 27th at 5:00 p.m.

Curbside pickup, drive through, delivery, and take out will still be allowed.

For right now, here is the complete list of businesses affected by the Executive Order:

i. Restaurants, food courts, cafes, coffeehouses, and other places of public accommodation offering food or beverage for on-premises consumption. This excludes institutional and in-house food cafeterias for businesses, hospitals, and long-term care facilities;
