Yes. Face masks are required indoors in Hopkins and throughout Minnesota. On Wednesday, July 22, Governor Tim Walz announced a statewide order requiring Minnesotans to wear face masks in restaurants, stores and other public indoor gathering places.
The face mask requirement is intended to add to (and not substitute for) other practices (such as hand washing, staying home when sick, and maintaining appropriate physical distancing of at least six feet) as recommended by public health officials to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
Individuals who fail to comply with the mask mandate can be punished with a petty misdemeanor and a fine of $100.
