The businesses could be fined or lose their liquor licenses if they don’t comply. Here are the 14 offenders:

  • Arnie’s Friendly Folks Club — Shakopee
  • Breakfast Bar of Minnesota — Minneapolis
  • COV — Wayzata
  • Cowboy Jacks — Minneapolis

The Minnesota Department of Health announced last Friday it’s taking action after receiving 120 complaints about restaurants and bars where employees were not wearing face masks, and social distancing wasn’t being enforced. Businesses will receive a warning, and could face cease-and-desist orders if they don’t comply.
