MEEKER COUNTY RECOMMENDS ALL UNVACCINATED PEOPLE WEAR A FACE COVERING INSIDE COUNTY FACILITIES:
There is no longer a statewide requirement to wear face coverings in most settings. However, other federal, state, or local laws may require face coverings in some settings (i.e. health care settings, on public transportation and others). Businesses may also set their own requirements for face coverings.
People who are not vaccinated, including children, are not required to wear face coverings indoors or outdoors by state executive order, but are at risk for getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly recommends that anyone who is not fully vaccinated continue to wear face coverings indoors in businesses, public settings, and when around peple from other households, as well as outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained. People who are fully vaccinated are recommended to wear face coverings indoors or outdoors until it has been at least two (2) weeks since the final dose of vaccine.
