Mask Mandate Lifted in Minnesota

In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) new mask guidance announced last week, Gov. Tim Walz announced he is signing an executive order effective today ending the statewide mask mandate.

  • The City of New Brighton does not have a mask mandate in place and will continue to follow executive orders issued by the governor and COVID-19 guidance provided by the CDC
  • Effective today, residents visiting City facilities are no longer required to wear face coverings or physically distance
  • The CDC recommends those who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing masks indoors
  • Private businesses may still require face masks inside their facilities and the public should follow those requirements
  • Minnesota’s Safe Learning Plan, along with the existing face covering guidance for schools and child care settings, remain in effect

COVID-19 vaccines are now available to residents ages 12 and over, visit to learn more and sign up.
