Be Our Guest ? Safely Welcoming Back Patrons and Employees

As the Minnesota stay-at-home order expires and Governor Walz announces new guidelines on May 20, bars, taprooms, and restaurants should have a plan in place that addresses the legal issues involved. Join us for a multi-disciplinary panel conversation on best practices and guidance navigating the return and how best to serve your patrons and employees.

Topics will include:

  • The State of Minnesota’s guidelines and perspectives on the phased re-opening of Minnesota bars, restaurants, and tap rooms;
  • Adapting existing space to new distancing and employee/patron safety protocols;
  • Employment guidance, policies, and other return to work practical considerations;
  • Adopting new practices and setting patron expectations; and
  • Industry questions arising from the guidelines.
