As of July 25, 2020, per the Governor’s Executive Order 20-81, people in Minnesota are required to wear a face covering in all public indoor spaces and businesses, unless alone. Additionally, workers are required to wear a face covering when working outdoors in situations where social distancing cannot be maintained. Research has shown that use of face coverings can greatly reduce the risk of infection when combined with other prevention efforts such as social distancing and hand hygiene.

At the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District, we are working with our staff, consultants, and contractors to comply with the new executive order. When in the office, all staff and contractors will wear face coverings, and observe social distancing guidelines. We will be updating our COVID-19 Preparedness Plan to reflect the changes to be made. In the meantime, check out the NMCWD Response to COVID-19 for updates.
Thank you for your help to slow the spread of COVID-19.
