Fourteen Minnesota bars and restaurants that received warnings last months for COVID-19 rule violations are now fully in compliance with state laws.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety reported Thursday that follow-up checks were conducted on the establishments, and no more violations were found.

The bars and restaurants initially received warning letters after violations were found by DPS and law enforcement agents conducting checks on 919 venues around the state, with employees not wearing face masks being the most common violation.

The establishments that are now in compliance with the safety rules set out in Gov. Walz's Executive Order 20-74 are as follows:

  • Neisen’s Sports Bar, Savage
  • K & J Catering , North St Paul
  • Route 47 Pub & Grub, Fridley
  • Long Siding Bar & Grill, Princeton
  • Danno’s, Anoka
  • CoV, Wayzata
  • Hoban Korean BBQ, Minneapolis
  • Pablo’s Mexican Restaurant, Shakopee
  • Arnie’s Friendly Folks Club, Shakopee
  • Princeton Speedway, Princeton
  • Rollie’s, Sauk Rapids
  • Breakfast Bar, Minneapolis
  • The Stadium, Annandale
  • Cowboy Jacks, Minneapolis

The DPS said it conducted its latest check Tuesday evening, observing 15 bars in St. Paul's Lowertown, and found all to be in compliance.

"We are grateful to those establishments who are working hard to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by following a few simple guidelines,” said DPS Assistant Commissioner Booker Hodges.

"We can all do our part to help keep our businesses safe by wearing a mask, social distancing and adhering to establishment seating limits."

However, the DPS says it continues to receive complaints from bars about customers violating seating restrictions or failing to wear masks.

"Seating is limited to four people at each table, or six for immediate family members," the DPS said. "Masks are required when entering a restaurant or bar and must be worn until the customer is seated."
