What is Stay Safe MN?

Stay Safe MN is moving the dial and introducing more interaction between people over time. As we take cautious steps forward, it is more important than ever that we protect those most at risk, support workers, and all do our part to slow the spread of the virus.

Beginning May 18, non-critical businesses, like retail stores and main street businesses, can reopen if they have a social distancing plan and operate at 50 percent capacity. Additionally, the Walz-Flanagan Administration is assembling guidance on how to safely reopen bars, restaurants, barbershops, and salons beginning June 1. Watch for more updates from the Minnesota Department of Employment & Economic Development about what this means for business.

Also, starting May 18, Minnesotans are welcome to gather with friends and family in groups of 10 or less with safe social distancing practices in place.

Importantly, this situation is fluid, and will be prepared to dial back if we need to. We will continue to follow the guidance of public health experts and make data-driven decisions.

We will monitor the rate of new cases, testing capacity, the percent of COVID-19 tests that are positive, and the percent of COVID-19 cases for which the source of infection if unknown. If there are sudden increases, we may move the dial back. More information on the data we are tracking can be found in our Response and Preparation Capacity section.
