The Twin Cities in this Moment: Clean-ups, Support and Closures

For over a week now, our community has been using this resource to find ways to serve our neighbors. We hope it provides you and your family with opportunities to help.

We have continued to add to this list to keep it updated. We have linked to the best source of information, usually Facebook pages as they continue to be updated. Please be sure to double check that events are still happening before heading out, but also be aware that many of the most pressing needs are often noted quickly and from within the community. We hope you’ll use this resource in addition to being sure to get connected directly with groups that are helping those in need.

Health officials are also encouraging all people to remember and be cautious of COVID-19, wearing masks while in close proximity of others.

Closures: Follow links for details on specific areas

This is by no means a complete list of closures and we will do our best to update as much as we can. Please be aware that we are linking to the websites or announcements of the businesses or organizations listed as much as we can but cannot guarantee how often they are updating their information. So many area businesses are closed it will be hard to keep this list updated and we will keep our closure updates to closures that involve access to food or regular services. For business closures please check websites or Facebook pages for updated details.

USPS has suspended service temporarily

Target has closed multiple locations in the area
(Now updated to just a couple area locations)

Lunds and Byerly’s locations | Open at all locations aside from the Uptown location (closed May 29th) but temporarily changing hours of operation

St. Paul farmers Market: Closed the weekend of May 30-31

Mill City Farmer’s Market: Closed for May 30th

Multiple area Trader Joe’s stores closed the weekend of May 30-31. Call your local store to check if you plan to head there.


  • Many, if not most, area curfews have been lifted – some cities have chosen to extend them. Check your local city and county websites if you are unsure if a curfew is in place in your area.

These are the current curfews in place. Most generally seem to be requiring the same thing: residents to be inside, no foot, automobile or bicycle travel of any kind. Homeless, those fleeing dangerous circumstances and those traveling to and from work appear to be exempt for all. The orders imply that anywhere aside from home is prohibited.

We welcome additional information on clean up, community support and closures. You can email [email protected] with details. 

(We will keep all old events and support efforts here – you may be able to link to them to find updates of new events happening in the area.)
