In accordance with new mask guidance announced May 13 by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Governor Tim Walz announced he is signing an executive order effective May 14, 2021, ending the statewide mask mandate.
All people who have not been vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in accordance with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and CDC recommendations until they are fully vaccinated. 
The City of Bloomington does not have a local mask mandate in place, other than for City-owned facilities.
Private businesses may still require face coverings, and patrons should follow those requirements as they visit establishments and facilities in Bloomington. Businesses are urged to review the Governor’s updated orders related to masking and make decisions for their establishment accordingly.
COVID-19 vaccines are now available to residents ages 12 and over.
