But WTH, with people feeling down about the bad news, let's ease up on restrictions

Live Music Now Allowed Inside Minnesota Bars And Restaurants, But No Dancing, CBS, 10/8/20

Live music will now be allowed inside Minnesota bars and restaurants large enough to accommodate social distancing, but dancing and karaoke will still be off the table.

Thatís according to updated guidelines released Thursday by the Minnesota Department of Health, which also boosted the occupancy for bars and restaurants and laid out more COVID-19 safety protocols.

... Expect to see tables on the dance floor. Dancing wonít be allowed if the establishment is still serving food or drinks. Additionally, the guidelines say all indoor guests must be seated.

Still, music-lovers will be able to see more people inside venues, as the new guidelines boosted indoor occupancy to 50%, with a maximum of 250 individuals. Maximum outdoor seating was also increased to 250 people.

At bars, tables will be able to accommodate parties up to four people. In dining rooms, parties as big as 10 will be able to be seated together. ((previously the limit was 6 at a table if from the same household, otherwise 4 at a table -Progree))

Looks like a matter of survival of bars and restaurants vs. survival of people, and people come in second.
