Governor Walz Extends the Stay at Home Order

Author: MHA/Thursday, April 9, 2020/Categories: COVID-19

Governor Walz issued Executive Order 20-33 extending his prior Stay at Home Order until Monday, May 4th. Under the Executive Order, Minnesotans continue to be prohibited from leaving their homes except to engage in permissible activities or to perform work as critical services workers as outlined by the Order and supporting documents.

As a reminder, following extensive MHA advocacy efforts, workers needed to keep apartment buildings operational and sanitary were given a critical services exemption under the initial Executive Order and continue to be permitted to perform work during the extension.
Two other important items under this Order. First, lawncare, outdoor maintenance, and landscaping are now included in the critical services exemption. Second, the order clarified that businesses and organizations may perform tasks that support minimum basic operations, such as security, payroll, and activities that facilitate working from home (e.g. IT).
The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development has prepared a Summary of the Critical Sector Modifications.
