Safely Reopening Minnesota’s Economy and Ensuring Safe Non-Work Activities during the COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency
Governor Tim Walz has issued Executive Order 20-56 which allows non-critical customer facing businesses to open beginning May 18, 2020. These Retail Businesses are able to open at 50% of "normal occupancy" as determined by the fire marshal.
If you are a business owner or manager of a customer facing retail establishment, your occupancy load can be found in a few different places. - On your original blueprints from an architect or engineer - On your original Certificate of Occupancy If you are not able to find either of those, we have put together a form to help determine your "normal occupancy". You can find it at www.cityofroseville.com/occupancyload.
Below is information provided by the State Fire Marshal's office regarding the occupancy loads . Please note that assembly institutions and salons have different occupancy load equations than retail businesses.
