The city of St. Peter has yet to have a discussion on requiring its citizens to wear masks. St. Peter city administrator Todd Prafke says it’s a noble goal, but…

“One of the challenges of it is the enforcement,” said Prafke. “And that’s been one of the challenges during COVID-19 started. Are they guidelines? Are they recommendations? Are they rules? Are we writing tickets? Aren’t we writing tickets? All those things are challenges.”

The Mankato City Council will discuss an emergency resolution to require facemasks indoors at places of public accommodation Monday night.
