Minnesota’s governor says he will let his stay-at-home order expire as scheduled Monday, though he’ll leave key restrictions in place to keep up Minnesota’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Tim Walz made the announcement in a televised speech Wednesday night.    

Many businesses, such as bars and restaurants, are scheduled to be reopened on June 1st. 

Walz says Minnesota is still in the heart of the pandemic, and the new order is aimed at bringing the economy to a ‘simmer…not a boil.’      

The governor said his new order brings back some of the social interactions “that are so important in life.”
