On Friday, May 14th Governor Walz signed Emergency Executive Order 2021-23 detailing a series of measured steps to safely end COVID-19 restrictions on social gatherings and businesses and set a timeline to safely rescind numerous executive orders that will no longer be necessary. The order also states that those that have been vaccinated no longer need face coverings in public spaces in accordance with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Currently, the City of Excelsior does not have a mask mandate. Businesses may require customers and employees to wear a mask. Please check with businesses on mask regulations.
