Information from the Minnesota Department of Health.

FAQ  about the Governor's Executive Order 20-81, requiring people in Minnesota to wear a face covering in all indoor businesses and public indoor spaces, unless you are alone. 

Should I say something or contact law enforcement if someone near me isn't wearing a face covering?

There are people who may not be able to wear face coverings for a variety of reasons and you may not be able to tell why just by looking at a person. Unless you are a business responsible for ensuring worker and customer compliance with the Executive Order, do not confront a person about why they are not wearing a face covering and do not report the person to state or local authorities, including law enforcement. Instead, ask the person to maintain social distance, if possible. Face coverings protect others from you so the best option is for you to continue to wear your face covering and, where possible, physically distance yourself at least six feet from people not wearing face coverings. Remember, we're all in this together and not everyone is able to wear a face covering.
