Effective this Friday, November 20, Minnesotans will be asked to stay home for four weeks.  

As hospitals express concern about capacity to treat Minnesotans with COVID-19, Governor Walz has dialed back reopening efforts to curb the spread of the virus in Minnesota. Beginning Friday, November 20, broad restrictions will apply temporarily to many sections of our daily lives.

Effective this Friday, November 20, Minnesotans will be asked to stay home for four weeks. 

  • All bars and restaurants will end dine-in service and operate exclusively with takeout or delivery.  
  • Fitness centers will be closed.
  • Adult and youth sports practices and competitions will be paused (professional and collegiate sports will continue).
  • Weddings, funerals, and other similar planned ceremonies can be held with the current rules in place, but all receptions and gatherings around these ceremonies must be canceled or postponed.


Holidays and celebrations

The most significant and perhaps most challenging restriction comes at a difficult time. The holiday season is difficult for many under normal circumstances. During COVID-19 it will be even more challenging. This time of year is when some gather with extended families, distant friends, and other special people in our lives. But this year should be different.

  • Minnesotans should not gather with anyone outside their immediate household, whether indoors or outdoors. 
  • During the next four weeks we are also asking that no person outside of the immediate household be brought into your home, except if certain exceptions apply. 

Within these guidelines is the opportunity to celebrate with those you already live with, but in order to protect our most vulnerable Minnesotans, we are urging you to reconsider any gathering that bring people of different households together.
