Scott County building mask requirements:  Updated May 14, 2021

On Thursday, May 13, Governor Tim Walz announced the elimination of the statewide mask mandate effective May 14.  In following the Governor’s direction, Scott County will not be instituting its own mask mandate, either as a local government or employer.

PLEASE NOTE:  This information pertains to Scott County government facilities only; anyone entering the Scott County Justice Center building will still be required to continue to wear a mask and follow social distancing requirements.  We expect to receive further instruction from Chief Justice Gildea following the Judicial Council meeting on Thursday, May 20.

Effective immediately, members of the public and employees will no longer be required to wear masks when entering a County building (**with specific and certain exceptions, please see below).

Importantly, the Governor also encouraged that people continue to wear masks when there are large gatherings in public spaces to protect those who have not been vaccinated, either due to their choice or due to their specific health conditions.

**Scott County employees will continue performing health screenings and wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when working with our clients and customers in close proximity and closed spaces (e.g., in-home visits, providing transportation, et cetera).

**In addition, many of our services have state or federal requirements related to health and safety (such as the Scott County Jail, the Court system/Justice Center, the Juvenile Alternatives Facility, Transit, Public Health) and those must continue to be followed. 

If you have questions about any specific department or business unit practices or restrictions, we encourage you to call ahead – the Scott County general number is 952-445-7750, simply ask to be directed to the right area.
