TWIN CITIES, Minn. (KTTC) – Both Minneapolis and St. Paul are dropping requirements for customers to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID test for indoor “food and drink establishments” effective immediately.

The move comes as both cities are seeing reduced cases of COVID-19 in both Hennepin and Ramsey Counties, respectively.

“We are grateful to be in a different place now than we were when this requirement first took effect,” said Mayor Carter. “While I encourage residents to continue to get vaccinated, wear masks, and practice social distancing while indoors, the sharp decline in cases and hospitalizations means we can safely lift the vaccine requirement in our city.”

Masking in all City-controlled facilities and in businesses licensed by the Cities will remain in place.

Businesses who choose to continue their own vaccine or testing requirements can continue to do so.
