Stay at home order: Effective at midnight, Governor Walz has issued a stay at home order. While you can technically be in trouble for violating it, if you are listed as exempt or essential, you will not get in trouble if you are going about your daily commute to work or to get gas or groceries.

The order simply gives authorities the ability to enforce it should it become a problem.

There have been talks of people being nervousthat they will get arrested for violating the order. As long as you meet the exempt status, you are OK and you can leave the house for the specified reasons such as going to work, getting groceries or gas.
