A mask mandate ordered by Governor Tim Walz is now in effect in all indoor public places in Minnesota. Walz says the goal is strategic reopening and *not* going backwards:

” And this mask mandate should ensure that we don’t have to do that — we continue to look forward on the things that we can re-open.”

“I have no idea what he’s talking about when he says that: If we can get compliance we may, or we may not, be able to go back to a Vikings game, or re-open schools.”
