Wright County Announces Lifting of Mask Requirements in County Facilities

In accordance with Executive Order 21-23 signed by Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz Friday, Wright County has announced that masks will be encouraged, but no longer required, in public areas of all county facilities. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Wright County has followed the guidance set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Executive Orders that have come out of the governor’s office over the last 15 months.

The guidance says that those who are completely vaccinated no longer need to wear masks – indoors or outdoors – in virtually all settings with a few exceptions. Municipalities and private businesses have the ability to continue their own mask mandates or policies, but, effective immediately, Wright County will not require that masks be worn for the public to conduct business at any county facility.

As stated in the CDC guidance and Executive Order 21-23, the lifting of the mask requirement is intended for those who have already been fully vaccinated. Out of respect for the health of Wright County residents and Wright County employees, those who have not been fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to continue to wear face coverings when in county buildings, but there will be no questioning of individuals as to whether or not they have been vaccinated and nobody will be denied any county service for not wearing a mask.

The 10th Judicial District has stated it will maintain a mandatory mask policy in the courts. Official from the 10th Judicial District will be meeting Thursday, May 20 to review its policy in light of federal and state changes in policy.
