Minnesota's Stay Safe Plan

Minnesota has made good progress on slowing the spread of COVID-19. As we continue the process of reopening our economy and returning to work and activities we enjoy, we must continue social distancing practices to save lives and stay safe. This chart outlines Minnesota's phased in approach to reopening various business and social settings.

Association Preparedness Plan

Under Governor Tim Walz’s Executive Orders, identified businesses that are in operation during the peacetime emergency are required to establish a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan.
