The mandate has been in effect for a couple of weeks now where you needed to show your Covid Vaccine Card or a negative Covid test and looks like that has come to an end as Minneapolis and St. Paul announced the mandate has been lifted.
According to CBS Minnesota, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter said, “We are grateful to be in a different place now than we were when this requirement first took effect. While I encourage residents to continue to get vaccinated, wear masks, and practice social distancing while indoors, the sharp decline in cases and hospitalizations means we can safely lift the vaccine requirement in our city.”
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced the end of the mandate effective immediately saying, “Key public health metrics are trending in the right direction. That is a welcomed sign for Minneapolis, especially for the small businesses and restaurants that have shouldered the weight of this pandemic. Let’s hold the momentum and bring our city back in full by continuing to follow public health guidance and supporting local businesses.”
The two cities also made a joint statement saying, "local businesses that wish to continue with their own vaccine or testing requirements may continue to do so.”
