For Businesses: Safely Returning to Work


Governor Tim Walz and state agencies including the Department of Employment and Economic Development, Department of Health, and Department of Labor and Industry are working together to gradually allow more businesses to reopen, serve customers, and safely return Minnesotans to work.

Effective May 18, 2020:
  • All retail stores, malls and other businesses that sell, rent, maintain and repair goods can reopen for in-person sales as long as they:
  • Have adopted and implemented a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan, including social distancing guidelines for workers and customers
  • Allow no more than 50% of the establishment's occupant capacity inside at any time
  • All businesses that have been allowed to reopen under previous Executive Orders, including Critical Sector businesses and non-Critical Sector industrial and office-based businesses, can continue operations.
  • Industrial or manufacturing businesses can also reopen co-located retail facilities as long as they also follow the restrictions outlined in Executive Order 20-56.
  • Critical Sector businesses that were never closed can continue to operate under the guidance in Executive Order 20-48.
All workers who are able to work from home should continue to do so.

Return to work: A web series

Is your business planning for a safe return to work? What are best practices to encourage a safe workplace for employees and customers? Learn best practices from experts in the industry.
