Frey to Keep Local Mask Standard in Place

May 13, 2021

Mayor Jacob Frey will keep current mask policy, local regulation 2020-12, in place for Minneapolis while public health data and local vaccination rates are reviewed. Upon review, Frey will revisit the decision to maintain or lift the mask standards. 

“The Minneapolis indoor mask requirement will stay in place while we review the data, consult our health experts, and analyze the unique circumstances and vaccination rates for our communities across our city,” said Frey “After such review we can reasonably project a timeline for lifting the requirement. That projection and final decision will follow the same health-based philosophy as when we first instituted the mask requirement a year ago. Minneapolis is nearing the end of this long journey, and our city is coming alive again - so we take this precaution to continue that consistent march in the right direction. There is good reason for hope in the Twin Cities.”

Read the full mask mandate No. 2020-12. It will remain in place based on Minneapolis health data.
