Face Coverings Required in Roseville Beginning July 27
Draft Resolution to Amend Emergency Order: Face Covering (PDF)
Masks will soon be required in Roseville. The Roseville City Council voted during its Monday, July 20 meeting to amend existing emergency declarations related to the COVID-19 pandemic to include requiring the use of face coverings in indoor areas accessible to the public.
The emergency order is effective as of Monday, July 27, 2020 and will remain in place until Minnesota Governor Tim Walz enacts a statewide order requiring face coverings, the Governor elects to end Minnesota’s Peacetime Emergency Declaration, or the Roseville City Council adopts a resolution rescinding the Emergency Order. Should none of the above conditions be met, the emergency declaration requiring face coverings will automatically expire on December 31, 2020, unless previously extended by Council resolution or ordinance.
To be in compliance with the emergency order, residents and visitors to Roseville must wear a face covering or mask that cover the mouth and nose in indoor areas accessible to the public. Please review the emergency order for definitions and descriptions of indoor areas and places of public accommodation.
Exemptions are listed in the order and include children under the age of five years old and Individuals unable to wear a face covering due to medical, disability, or developmental reasons.
More information about the use of face coverings is available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
