This afternoon, Governor Walz announced that several COVID-19 restrictions will be rolled back or modified next week.
The following adjustments take effect on Monday, March 15:
Additional modifications will take effect as more Minnesotans are vaccinated. For example, large venues can add additional capacity on April 1. Working from home if you can will continue to be strongly recommended, but Minnesotans will not be required to after April 15. You can find more information about these public health measures at staysafe.mn.gov.
This is very encouraging news, and a sign that the end of the pandemic is near. However, we’re not out of the woods yet. It’s still extremely important to take steps to protect yourself and others, such as wearing a mask and social distancing.
