Business Closures: Guidance on MN Executive Orders

City Officials have received numerous questions about the Governor’s Stay at Home Executive Orders and how they impact local businesses. This page discusses closures and exemptions.

Business Closures

Please review guidance from MN DEED to determine whether your business classification is deemed “critical” and if it is not, then you may not remain open

Want to learn more about reopening safely? Click here.

Please contact City Staff with questions about whether your business needs to be closed, whether you can reopen, and how to do so safely.

Need help navigating Closures?

Those with questions are encouraged to ask City Staff for help by emailing Nathan Fuerst, Planner/Economic Development Specialist.

Businesses Still Open

Businesses that have been allowed to continue operation are restaurants and bars that serve food (curbside and take-out only), health service providers, liquor stores, and financial institutions including insurance & investments.

We recognize the shut down has created significant hardship for businesses not deemed “critical”. Although our City is not creating Executive Orders, we do need to ensure businesses are following them. 

The City’s goal is to communicate information on closures promptly to businesses, and to be here as support for those that would like help navigating State of Minnesota regulations.

Please follow our Governor’s Executive Orders to do your part in slowing the spread of the COVID-19 virus during this pandemic.  We would also like to encourage our residents to continue supporting those businesses remaining open.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call myself, the City Administrator or our City Planners.

Thank you,

Tom Nikunen, City Administrator

City of Jordan

Errands to Reduce Risk

Errands to Reduce Risk – City Coordinated Volunteer Program

This program is intended to reduce the spread of COVID-19 among Jordan residents that are at higher risk (including the elderly or immunocompromised) by connecting them with volunteers that are willing to run errands in their stead.

Errands include, but are not limited to: groceries, pharmacy items, home goods or essentials, pet food, etc. To the greatest extent possible, volunteers agree to reduce contact with the program recipients.

To receive help: Please call 952-492-2535

We will coordinate with volunteers to take care of our high risk residents. Prospective volunteers will be screened by using publicly available court records.
