Saint Paul reinstates city-wide mask requirement

On Jan. 5, Saint Paul Mayor Melvin Carter signed an Executive Order, renewing the requirement for facemasks to be worn indoors in all city-controlled facilities and at all businesses licensed by the city when social distancing of at least six feet is not maintained, except for temporary removal of face covering when eating or drinking.

The reinstated requirement for licensed businesses takes effect on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022 at 5 p.m.

All businesses are strongly encouraged to continue to require that all individuals wear a face covering indoors at all times when social distancing of at least six feet is not maintained.

The city of Minneapolis has also reinstated a city-wide mask policy, which requires patrons, employees and visitors wear a mask in businesses and places of public accommodation.
