This page will serve as a resource for area updates, business operations changes, and other information during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At this time, all retail businesses have re-opened for indoor shopping so I will no longer note that on the list. Most restaurants also offer indoor dining but not all. I will continue to note that.
I will be updating this page for Cook County (Grand Marais, Lutsen, Schroeder, Tofte, Gunflint Trail, Grand Portage) only.
MASKS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL IN-STORE SHOPPING! Masks REQUIRED in many North Shore businesses. Please be respectful. This is a statewide mandate. The statewide mandate will end on July 1st at the latest. At this time, some stores may still require masks to be worn while others will not. We will not be keeping track of this, please refer to the Facebook page or website of the stores you are visiting to know what their policies will be going forward.
Here is the current, known list of restaurants, bars, and shops offering services at this time. Updated May 13, 2021.
