Duluth announces mask mandate

A moose mounted at Buck's Hardware Hank in Grand Marais donned a mask last spring during the debate over COVID protection.

On Thursday, Duluth Mayor Emily Larson signed a declaration of emergency implementing a city-wide indoor mask mandate effective at 5:00pm on Friday, Jan. 14.

  • The mandate will be in effect for 30 days.
  • The mandate applies to ages 5+.
  • The mandate does exempt childcare.
  • The city will be enforcing its rules.
