The City of Golden Valley would like to remind residents and visitors that the mask mandate that went into effect January 13, 2022 also applies to public and private schools and daycare centers. This applies to individuals ages three and up who are able to medically tolerate a face covering when they are in indoor spaces of public accommodation, except for the purposes of eating and/or drinking.
The decision to require masks for children is based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the Minnesota Department of Health, and the Minnesota Department of Human Services, which regulates childcare centers.
More information about these recommendations is available at the following websites:
To read the proclamation and resolutions adopted by the City Council at its Jan 11, 2022 special meeting, see below.
