ST. PAUL -- A political insider says he's expecting the governor to return to pre-pause restrictions when he makes his announcement Wednesday afternoon.

Blois Olson says well-placed sources tell him the plan is to go back to the rules just before the pause. That would suggest the guidance for restaurants would be 50 percent indoor dining capacity, no bar service, and a closing time of 10:00 p.m.

More specific details are expected to emerge as the morning goes on.

The current restrictions are set to expire on Monday.

Governor Tim Walz will update the public at 2:00 p.m. with his office officially saying a "loosening of restrictions on indoor dining and other settings".
