The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new recommendations advising that fully vaccinated people are not required to wear face coverings in most places. The CDC advises those who have not been fully vaccinated to continue to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces. The Minnesota Department of Health follows these guidelines. The CDC continues to order individuals to wear face coverings on public transportation, in health care facilities and in other settings. See the full guidelines here.
To clarify, the City of Coon Rapids has followed all state guidelines and recommendations during the COVID-19 pandemic, therefore the City of Coon Rapids is not requiring face coverings for those who are fully vaccinated. This applies to both employees and to those who enter City facilities. The city of Coon Rapids does not have a separate mask mandate in place. Minneapolis and St. Paul are two cities that currently have separate mask mandates in place.
Social distancing and sanitizing measures will continue to be in place in all City of Coon Rapids facilities.
As detailed in the state guidelines, private businesses are allowed to decide whether they want to continue to have customers wear masks in their facilities. Businesses will have signs in place if masks are required.
