Minnesota set for a new socially distant, spread-out normal

Most activities in Minnesota are going to be permitted in limited capacities, starting Wednesday, but the need to stick to social distancing remains

A social distancing reminder at the beach at Fort Snelling State Park on Monday when the high was in the 90s.

Minnesotans on Wednesday will once again be able to drink in bars, go to movies, work out and swim at clubs - as long as they keep their distance from others due to the continued threat of COVID-19.

Health officials believe the COVID-19 pandemic has either plateaued or is on a downward wave in Minnesota, making the resumption of more everyday activities OK with the caveat of maintaining a social distance of 6 feet from others in public.

Infections with the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 could increase under the relaxed restrictions announced Friday by Gov. Tim Walz, but health officials will be monitoring cases numbers for any spikes that would be concerning, said Kris Ehresmann, state infectious disease director.
