Minnesota To Lift Mask Mandate Tomorrow Following CDC Changes For Those Fully Vaccinated
Governor Walz announced this evening that he will lift Minnesota's mask mandate tomorrow. The Governor plans to sign an executive order in the morning with no distinctions between those vaccinated and those not vaccinated.
The Governor made a plea to all Minnesotans to get vaccinated as the state takes this step.
Earlier today President Biden and the CDC announced that Americans fully vaccinated can
"resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal or territorial laws, incl. local business and workplace guidance.”
MnRA recommends retailers clearly communicate their employee and customer expectations as this transition occurs. Retailers and other businesses may keep masking requirements in place for employees and/or customers if desired.
