Mask & Face Coverings

MASKS ARE REQUIRED IN ALL MEEKER COUNTY GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS AS OUTLINED IN 
GOVERNOR WALZ' EXECUTIVE ORDER

As of July 25, 2020, per the Governor's Executive Order 20-81, people in Minnesota are required to wear a face covering in all indoor businesses and public indoor spaces, unless alone. Additionally, workers are required to wear a face covering when working outdoors in situations where social distancing cannot be maintained. Research has shown that use of face coverings can greatly reduce the risk of infection when combined with other prevention efforts such as social distancing and hand hygiene.
