Mask Mandate In Effect for The City of Winona
In the video below you can watch Winona Mayor, Scott Sherman, discuss the city's new mask mandate. The mayor signed the mask order on Wednesday and it is now in effect.
Sherman says the mask mandate makes the community safer, keeps kids in school, and keeps businesses open. “Here in Winona, we look out for each other, and masks are an opportunity to help take care of our friends, neighbors, family members, and colleagues. Masks are an excellent tool in our toolkit to keep each other safe.”
The city of Winona has a Facebook page dedicated to sharing COVID-19 information. An update on that page explains, "The order requires all Winona residents and visitors to wear face coverings when in public indoor spaces, and encourages face coverings outdoors where physical distancing is difficult. The order requires wearing masks indoors when individuals are in businesses, bars/restaurants (except when seated), and other locations. There are exemptions for medical, disability, developmental, and other reasons. Folks who don't comply will be asked to leave the business or area; refusal could result in trespassing. Businesses could face administrative actions on city licenses."
