Minnesota Retailers Association Statement On Masking Changes – May 13, 2021
The CDC guidance and Governor Walz’s announcement on dropping Minnesota’s mask mandate tomorrow is a welcome step celebrating Minnesota’s vaccination progress and pandemic response. The announcement carried with it an important reminder that businesses--including retail stores—can still make their own decisions on masking.
Some retailers will lift masking requirements and others will keep them in place. We remind everyone that during this transition it is important to respect the requests of businesses as they look to make the best decisions possible when it comes to the safety of customers and workers.
Minnesota’s retailers are excited to near the end of the pandemic emergency and appreciate shoppers and employees helping Minnesota get there.
