If seating is limited this year, how does that impact season ticket holders?

Do you buy a seat you can't use? Almost impossible to reach anyone by phone on this and other matters.

If you don't have a seat, you don't pay. Email them, they respond quickly.

it won't be limited...this thing is all but over...Walz should "turn back dial" in next few weeks... case numbers on a serious decline now, adults (18 and up) with at least one shot in MN at 55% already, add in those with antibodies from previous exposure and approaching herd immunity, hospitalizations on a very good trend, zero deaths today (over 65 risk group at 85% vaccinated), plenty of vaccinations available now with J and J cleared, treatments much improved for those who do get it...anyone who hasn't been vaccinated by Memorial Day should be considered to be at risk by their own choice

The sad experience here and abroad is to ignore the safety precautions as soon as there is light at the end of the tunnel.
As soon as close to 50-55% of the state is vaccinated the restriction can be loosened.
I would favor events like the spring game, restaurants etc to be unlimited access to those who have proof of vaccination.

this guy does great statistical breakdowns on his twitter feed...go to his feed and follow the thread for all the Minnesota numbers:

Average cases and deaths are where they were last Summer, and hospitalizations are higher. The amount of testing is higher. These all need to trend down over more than 11 days. The period right before these 11 days was trending up.

WTF is the point of a "passport", other than to give the government power to limit what you can and can't do? I signed up for a vaccine on Monday, and have to wait until.....Friday, and that's because the place is only open Friday/Saturday. They had literally almost every appointment available when I signed up. If you want a vaccine, they are now easy to get. If you're afraid, get a vaccine. If you're not, I'm guessing you're OK with the risks. So what does the passport accomplish?

Go to a pharmacy for your shot. Much easier and better managed than state sponsored venues.

Got my two shots at state site. Super easy and fast. Well organized and efficient. Everyone at my company as well, same experience.

Just curious, what happened to my body, my choice? This whole thing is blown way out of proportion, and I mean no disrespect to those that truly suffered from Covid. Covid was the third leading cause of death in 2020 which includes some experts saying that the numbers were blown up by as much as 1600%. Florida, Texas and other states that had the loosest restrictions are far better off than NY, NJ, Mi and others that are still very regulated. Those that have received shots are you still wearing a mask? If so why? I haven't gotten the shots yet, although I am not entirely opposed to it. If there are still restrictions to outdoor events in your area you need to call BS on your local and state governments. What a total shit show the last year has been!

Proof of vaccination means within the limits of probability you will not go to the hospital because of the virus and will not infect other people who have not yet been vaccinated or will not get vaccinated.
So you should have carte blanche to mix and mingle without a mask or distancing.
I seemed to have touched a nerve among those who fear the government put a chip in the vaccine.

Spoken like a true Texan; that may not be a good thing.

F.A.M.I.L.Y.
Forget about me, I love you.
It’s not about the government or just about me, or just about you. It’s about us. Us Gopher fans. Us Americans. Us human beings.

I think it applies in any case!
At most an abortion affects 2, maybe 3 lives if you believe life begins at conception (the parents and the baby accounting for the 3 lives). Your choice to not wear a mask appears to only affect yourself at first glance because you have to deal with getting sick, but you can spread it to others and potentially affect 10s-100s of others by infecting them.

If it was just you not wearing a mask, then fine, but it's a lot more people than just you. You can argue that everyone not wearing a mask is taking that risk, but if you all start getting sick and overwhelm the hospitals again, then you start affecting others who need to go to the hospital as well who did make the choice to wear a mask.

So as you can see, scale matters.

P.S. get out of here with that overcounted by 1600% propaganda BS you got from whichever "news source" you subscribe to.

Not going to argue with you, whatever the numbers are, they were indeed inflated. I have always worn a mask in public indoor places but we are seeing more and more people opting not to do that here in the greater Houston area. Again, the entire regulatory bodies of Covid have screwed this up many times over and left the public with many more challenges than Covid itself, in my opinion.

too difficult to show a ID to vote, but you need a vaccine passport to go to a sporting event or to fly. The socialists have taken over. Say it ain't so Joe.
Significantly easier in a lot of places to get proof of vaccination vs an ID that meets all the requirements for voter id laws in many places. I know for one, getting my first dose of the vaccine was way easier than virtually every trip I've made to the dmv....

Well. I has actually coming here to get some insight on Season Tickets, but I see it's a thread that has gone off the rails. Oy!
that's because Minnesota is on the very extreme side of liberalism...:)). You just have to accept that.

Another person fed the false premise by plutocrats that socialism is the same as communism.
If you ever lived in Scandinavia you would see how very wrong you are.
