Brent Hanson and bartender Justin Fowler visited at Dusty's Bar Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022 a few minutes before the mask mandate went into effect in Minneapolis on Thursday.

Minneapolis and St. Paul quietly reconciled themselves Thursday to the return of mask mandates with seemingly little outrage over what has been a volatile issue nationwide, and both cities were considering as their next steps requiring proof of vaccination in some public places.

Before Minneapolis' indoor mask requirement took effect Thursday afternoon, Jeff Hatzenbeller, a Ham Lake resident who works in downtown Minneapolis, stood unmasked in the skyway, chatting with another man in no mask. He seemed to reflect the views of many.

"I've never had a problem with the mask thing, myself," he said.
