Support Retail and Services Businesses

Last updated March 12, 2021

On March 12, Governor Tim Walz announced a positive turning of the dial measures to allow for loosening of COVID-19 restrictions. This includes:

  • No occupancy limits for salons and barbers but physical distancing and masking are required.
  • Gyms, fitness centers, and pools may now operate at 50 percent capacity; physical distancing and masking are required.
  • Venues, celebrations, and receptions are open to 50 percent capacity with 250 people maximum. Starting April 1, larger venues will add additional capacity. Please see for more information here related to those guidelines.

Rochester is a tight-knit community and are there for one another through thick and thin. The RDA is gathering ways of supporting downtown businesses while observing government recommendations and responses to COVID-19/coronavirus. When in-person shopping or frequenting businesses is not possible, please consult the list below for businesses offering gift cards and/or online services in Rochester.

We will make timely updates to this list as they are received. To have your business listed or updated, please call 507-216-9882 or email info@downtownrochestermn.com.

Visit the Support Local Dining page to find restaurants offering takeout and delivery.

With the City's Risk Dial moving to moderate, we are launching a new service: Library Express. This service will allow in-person browsing, borrowing, and internet use, for up to 30 minutes each day.

Starting Thursday, March 11, Curbside by Appointment (in the Civic Center Ramp) will no longer be available. The service was essential earlier in the COVID-19 health crisis, but resources will be shifting to provide Library Express. The library will provide contactless pickup through the Walkup Windows 7 days a week, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Thursdays until 8 p.m.).

For more information, call the Library at 507-328-2300.
