Roadmap to Opening Needed
The image above is a plan being touted by Rep. Dave Baker of Willmar as a common-sense, methodical way of reopening the economy by May 1st. Many businesses are still restricted occupancy including restaurants, fitness, hair salons, event facilities, churches, and theaters.
These restrictions limit what can be done at these businesses and the lack of a reopen plan keeps customers away.
Community celebrations, outdoor events, weddings and many other events are in a holding pattern waiting for the plan. Businesses need time to get ready and a plan will allow for that. We urge Governor Walz to embrace this plan or something like it to give business a path forward.
