Restaurant & Retail Hours

On March 16, 2020 Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced the closure of public meeting spaces for two weeks to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

This is an incredibly trying time for small local businesses whose profit margins are razor thin and whose employees rely on their paycheck. While several businesses have had to close for the time being in accordance with Minnesota Governor Walz Executive order on March 16, there are a number who are working to provide services to the public while maintaining appropriate health and safety standards.
