Walz imposes new limits on bars, restaurants, gatherings

(Minneapolis AP) – Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has ordered Minnesota bars and restaurants to stop serving at 10 p.m. and is limiting attendance at weddings, funerals, and social gatherings under new restrictions aimed at slowing the accelerating spread of the coronavirus.

The new rules, which take effect Friday, are aimed at young adults, ages 18 to 35, who are often carriers of the virus without showing symptoms and are among the primary spreaders in the state.

The new limits will kick in shortly before college students return home for Thanksgiving. The changes target people who mingle without masks after too many drinks.
