Statewide Mask Mandate Effective July 25
 
Governor Walz announced Executive Order 20-81 . This order requires face coverings in indoor spaces and public buildings including retail stores, and in similar outdoor settings where social distancing is not possible. This mandate will go into effect on July 25.
 
Signage will be required at retail stores. Retailers will be required to make a reasonable effort to educate non-compliant customers. Retailers will be required to deal with a non-compliant customers in a manner similar to how they would deal with any other non-compliant customers relative to store policy.
 
Any business or other impacted party that blatantly disregards the order will be subject to penalties including up to a $1,000 fine or by imprisonment for not more than 90 days.
 
Business obligations, what a face covering is, and exemptions can be found here: https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/facecover.html
 
Impacted businesses are required to update their COVID-19 preparedness plan accordingly. Preparedness Plan Requirement Guidance for retail stores can be found here: https://mn.gov/deed/assets/reopening-minnesotas-consumer-facing-businesses_tcm1045-431883.pdf
 
Exemptions to the mask mandate include: children under 2 who must never wear masks due to risk of suffocation, children 2-5 are not required to wear face coverings, people with medical or health conditions, strenuous work, and more. (Retailers are not required to verify health conditions.)
 
Local orders that exceed the state order are not preempted, but an analysis by the Minnesota Retailers Association shows a majority of local masking requirements are superseded by the state order.
 
In summary, retailers are required to:
 
1.   Ensure workers and customers are masked.
2.   Update COVID-19 preparedness plans to reflect the masking requirement.
3.   Treat non-compliant customers as you would any other customer violating a store policy.
4.   Post signage indicating masking is required.
Quarantine If You Might Be Sick

Stay home if you might have been exposed to COVID-19

Updated July 7, 2020
Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms. People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health, and follow directions from their state or local health department.

What’s the difference between quarantine and isolation? Quarantine keeps someone who might have been exposed to the virus away from others.

Isolation separates people who are infected with the virus away from people who are not infected.

Who needs to quarantine?
Anyone who has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19.

This includes people who previously had COVID-19 and people who have taken a serologic (antibody) test and have antibodies to the virus.
