ST. PAUL - Minnesota is heading into Memorial Day weekend and leaving behind the last of its COVID-19 precautions.

Health officials are still advising unvaccinated residents to wear face masks indoors and practice social distancing. But their words have less legal backing now that Minnesota has done away with its mask mandate, though local municipalities and businesses can still set their own coronavirus pandemic guidance.

The remaining capacity limits for indoor events and gatherings expired Friday morning, May 28, as part of a timeline Gov. Tim Walz announced earlier this month. The timeline was altered somewhat when the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidance saying that fully vaccinated Americans can go without masks in most settings.
