Minnesota cities set their own mask requirements to fight the COVID-19
July 8, 2020
In the absence of any state or federal order, mayors and city councils around Minnesota are passing local requirements to wear masks while indoors to limit the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
Already this week, the cities of Winona, Rochester, Mankato and Edina have enacted mask requirements, and similar mandates will be debated this month in Duluth and St. Cloud.
Minneapolis, St. Paul and the 63,000-student University of Minnesota require mask-wearing indoors, and the state Supreme Court mandated masks in all court facilities starting July 13.
