On Wednesday, Gov. Tim Walz approved the reopening of summer resorts across the state, as long as resorts operate with sanitary and social distancing practices in place.
Communal amenities are not allowed to be used, except retail food stores, laundry facilities, fish cleaning stations and docks, as long as social distancing and enhanced cleaning protocols are followed.
Hospitality Minnesota says most resorts were waiting on Wednesday’s recommendation from the Governor to decide whether or not to open this summer.
If the governor’s Stay-At-Home order stays in place into the summer months, the order discourages unnecessary travel, and asks people to remain close to their homes.
Gov. Walz says resorts do not have to open up if they are not comfortable with it.
