Face Covering Requirements Continue to Gain Strength in Minnesota

The city councils of Duluth, Excelsior, and Minnetonka in Minnesota have voted to adopt emergency ordinances mandating face coverings.

Under the Duluth Ordinance, all individuals 10 years of age and older are required to wear face coverings in places of indoor public accommodation. Additionally, places of public accommodation must post notice of this requirement in a conspicuous location inside and outside entrances to their business. The Duluth Ordinance is effective immediately.

Effective July 23, 2020, the Excelsior Ordinance requires all individuals 13 years of age or older to wear a face-covering in indoor areas accessible to the public, including restaurants, entertainment venues, and common spaces in multi-tenant office buildings.

Similarly, the Minnetonka Ordinance, effective July 23, 2020, requires individuals six years of age or older to wear a face-covering in indoor public spaces. Businesses must include the mask requirement in their COVID-19 Preparedness Plan and post written notice at all entries to their premises.

These are just the latest cities to join the growing list of Minnesota cities (including Minneapolis, St. Paul, Winona, Mankato, Rochester, and Edina) requiring face coverings.

Reopening orders contain extensive requirements creating compliance issues that can vary significantly depending on the specific state or local jurisdiction. Jackson Lewis attorneys are closely monitoring updates and changes to legal requirements and guidance and are available to help employers weed through the complexities involved with state-specific or multistate-compliant plans.
