Minnesota adjusts to new Stay Safe order

 Governor Tim Walz’s Stay Safe Order encourages Minnesotans to stay close to home but allows gatherings of friends and family of 10 people or less, if proper social distancing measures—like staying 6 feet apart and wearing a mask—are taken. The order also further opens retail stores and other Main Street businesses if they have a preparedness plan and operate at 50 percent occupancy.   Watch for a daily email from MCPA with updates, links and guidance for law enforcement on the state's Covid-19 response.  Contact us at [email protected] with questions and recommendations.
