MINOT, N.D. – The Minot City Council voted to approve a mask resolution at Monday night’s meeting. 

The resolution requires city employees to wear face masks or face coverings where a six-foot distance cannot be maintained, or when the employee is instructed to do so by their medical provider or their supervisor. 

It also strongly recommends the public and area businesses to follow suit.

It comes after other large North Dakota cities have adopted similar temporary resolutions, and the state launched the #MaskUpND initiative.

The council and Mayor Shaun Sipma unanimously passed the resolution 7-0.

“These measures are recommended by the highest medical disease organizations in the land,” said Minot Alderman Mark Jantzer. 

The resolution goes into effect Aug. 24 and expires Nov. 16, unless extended or terminated earlier by the council.
