Gov. Tim Walz in an address announced that dine-in services at restaurants and bars will be allowed to resume June 1, but only outdoors, and for no more than 50 people at a time. Patrons are encouraged to make a reservation and to also wear a mask except while eating.
Salons, tattoo parlors and barbershops will also be able to open June 1, but stylists and artists must wear masks, as do their clients. The salons and shops must stay at 25 percent capacity, and serve customers by appointment only. Walk-ins will not be allowed.
Churches, mosques and synagogues are still limited to 10-person congregations at a time, for either indoor or outdoor services.
Youth sports will be allowed to proceed, in a limited capacity, but practices only, no competitive games. The phased reopen strategy effective June 1 also allows for a limited reopening of campgrounds.
