It’s expected Governor Tim Walz will announce today (Thurs) he’s dialing-back some business closures and other restrictions under his stay-at-home order. The governor said in Worthington yesterday:

“If we can make a large plant function, and we can do it without infecting people, we probably ought to be able to allow the Ace Hardware store to be able sell the hammer when they need to with a couple people in the store — that’s the way we’re thinking about it.”

But Walz says large gatherings, like football stadiums or packed bars, will be some of the last things to come back.
