Minnesota Governor Tim Walz  says he has a state reopening plan that he will unveil specifics on Thursday.

I’ve got to say, it’s been refreshing to have the kids back into springtime activities, getting some energy out and being able to interact with other parents. Seems like its been forever since that’s happened.

Gov. Walz stated “Thursday’s announcement will go a long way to moving things forward. I think Minnesotans can start assuming they will have a very normal looking summer.”

The last rollbacks in restrictions were in Mid-March when gyms, bars and restaurants were allowed to operate at larger capacities. One can assume the relaxation of outdoor limits will be loosened and potentially bars and restaurants could be allowed to stay open later. Especially establishments with outdoor dining/seating options.
