Capacity, mask violations alleged at Mankato bar

A Mankato bar had allegedly violated state executive orders put in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Violations at the South Street Saloon were observed by police Saturday night around 10:30 p.m., according to police records.

Associate Director Dan Schisel said the establishment had exceeded capacity, which is 50% or 250 people – whichever is lower – under the governor’s order. He also cited maskless staff members.

A report will be forwarded to the necessary state agencies for review, according to Schisel.
