On behalf of the business community, Greater Mankato Growth has partnered with the Minnesota Ready Coalition lead by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce to call on Governor Tim Walz to take the final step to allow all businesses to fully and safely open no later than June 19, 2020.

Sandra Oachs, the owner of Spinners Bar and Grill in North Mankato, says they will continue to keep employees and customers safe.

“We all need to open up safely and together. We’re all in this together so let’s open up together.”

Greater Mankato Growth joined 55 partner chambers and associations across the state in sending the Governor a letter to this effect. In addition, Greater Mankato Growth is releasing a video featuring businesses from across the community describing how they’re keeping customers and employees safe and the impacts they’ve felt from COVID-19.
