As of this past weekend, several coronavirus restrictions have been loosened in the state. Last week, Governor Tim Walz announced that bars and restaurants can host up to 250 people, restaurants can stay open until 11 p.m, maximum capacity for indoor entertainment businesses and private events is moved to 25- percent and gyms and pools can allow up to 250 people. The easing of those restrictions was announced as Minnesota continues to see lower levels of COVID-19. Employment officials said these changes will make a difference to thousands of businesses and workers. The announced rollbacks went into effect on Saturday.
