County Board Repeals Mask Policy, Adopts Executive Order 20-81 from State

Today (July 28), the Wright County Board of Commissioners approved repealing its policy on face coverings and replaced it with Gov. Tim Walz’s Executive Order 20-81, which took effect at midnight Saturday, July 25.

The county’s policy was less restrictive than the new statewide face covering mandate. While it encouraged citizens to wear face coverings in county buildings, it wasn’t mandatory. Several offices within county buildings, including administration, court services, county attorney and court administration, had a mask requirement, but public areas left the decision whether or not to wear a mask up to the individual.

The county’s new policy conforms to the policy enacted by the state and unilaterally by many large businesses to require face coverings indoors.
