Update on Mask Mandate for City


Alexandria, MN, May 17, 2021 – The City of Alexandria is reaching out to the public regarding the mask mandate changes that were made by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz on May 14, 2021.
City officials are supporting this Executive Order as follows:
• Masks are no longer required in city facilities.
• Per Centers for Disease Control and Minnesota Department of Health guidelines, we recommend those that are not fully vaccinated wear a mask while indoors.
• Please have a face covering readily available as businesses and institutions have the ability to require face coverings as they wish.

“I am counting on our citizens to be people of integrity who are committed to beat this pandemic. I ask that if you are not vaccinated please engage with the CDC recommendation to voluntarily wear a mask when appropriate.” ~ Mayor Bobbie Osterberg

The COVID-19 pandemic has been influencing decisions for 15 months. We appreciate the community’s support and flexibility as we navigate forward.
