PLS WILL NO LONGER REQUIRE PATRONS TO WEAR MASKS WHEN USING THE LIBRARY. Governor Walz announced yesterday that the state mask mandate ends effectively today, May 14. The updated CDC guidance that fully vaccinated individuals could stop wearing masks in most settings. Those who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to continue to wear masks until fully vaccinated. This means 2 weeks after the last dose. The state guidance does not differentiate between adults and children, so this applies to all patrons. We will still provide masks for those who are not vaccinated, have medical conditions, and feel more comfortable wearing a mask.
