ST. PAUL (LEARFIELD) – Governor Walz says he understands that Minnesota bar and restaurant owners are upset about not being able to fully re-open for customers yet.

The governor said he would discuss more about his plan this week.

“If you’re a business owner we want to make sure that when we open up again you stay open,” said Gov. Walz. “We want to make sure you’re not put in a position where people are getting sick in your premises and that we simply created a pathway that we’ll talk about Wednesday to see how we do that in the very near future.”

On Monday, Walz lifted the executive stay at home order for retail businesses, but said he’d likely be waiting – until possibly June 1st — before announcing a decision to reopen bars and restaurants.
