Inspections were recently done at 167 establishments outside the Twin Cities metro.

The inspections, done in Scott and Carver counties and the cities of Mankato, St. Peter, Waseca, Faribault and New Ulm, found 88 bars and restaurants were following state COVID-19 requirements and 79 were not.

A Minnesota Department of Health summary says 31 establishments were referred for follow-up inspections by state health and licensing officials for issues such as customers and workers not wearing masks, failure to maintain social distancing, and a lack of preparedness plans and worker training.
