Business Creeps Toward Normalcy as Stay-At-Home Order Expires

Kevin Berger (left) and daughter, Emily, of Berger Interiors in downtown Belle Plaine sported face masks in their showroom on Monday, May 18, as Gov. Tim Walz’s stay-at-home order expired. Replacing the Stay-At-Home order will be a Stay Safe Minnesota order which still encourages Minnesotans who can work from home to do so, wear masks when shopping, limit travel to what is essential, keep gatherings to 10 people or less, and socially distance at least six feet apart. Businesses are required to put in place safety plans and limit customers to half of their buildings’ capacity. Hair salons, sit-down restaurants and other businesses remain closed.
