A court order will close a Wabasha County gym that stayed open despite the latest COVID-19 restrictions.

Plaineview Wellness remained open for business even after the latest executive order closed fitness centers around the state. The gym caught the attention of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison who filed the motion to get the facility closed.

Ellison, in a statement, said the ruling recognizes what he called the firm legal standing of COVID-19 executive orders
