FROM THE GCB: Lawful Gambling Can Move Indoors Starting Wednesday, June 10
Per Governor Walz’s Executive Order 20-74 starting Wednesday, June 10, 2020, bars, restaurants, and other places of public accommodation may provide indoor and outdoor service subject to certain requirements as follows:
- Occupancy of any indoor space must not exceed 50% of normal occupancy, with a maximum of 250 people in a single, self-contained space.
- Occupancy of any outdoor space is limited to the number for whom social distancing of 6’ can be maintained between tables, also not to exceed 250 people.
- Workers must follow face-covering requirements set forth in applicable guidance available at the Stay Safe Minnesota website (https://staysafe.mn.gov).
- The executive order reiterates that licensed veterans and fraternal organizations may lend gambling funds to their general fund accounts for up to one year to pay for allowable expenses necessary to reopen such organizations’ permitted premises.
Also attached is the AMJ Gaming News from the GCB. There is a survey that organizations are requested to take and return by June 15.
ACM has had questions around meat raffles and bingo. Guidance from the GCB is that everything can start up that’s operated in compliance with the social distancing restrictions. There aren’t any social distancing restrictions specific to the conduct of lawful gambling. The GCB would ask organizations to follow the same procedures as there are for selling/serving drinks and food.
Attached is the May 8 2020 GCB checklist for re-opening.
