City of Duluth to remove mask requirement inside City facilities effective immediately
[Duluth, MN] As a result of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recent listing of St. Louis County's COVID-19 community spread as medium, and in alignment with the CDC's safety guidance, effective immediately, masks will no longer be required for staff and the public in all City of Duluth facilities.
