Masks now required in county buildings

By Anna Jauhola
Kittson County residents wanting to do business at the courthouse in Hallock will need to be prepared to wear a mask.
After Gov. Tim Walz announced last week Minnesotans must wear masks in all public indoor spaces starting Saturday, July 25, Kittson County followed suit as they have done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The county commission discussed the issue at its Tuesday, July 21 meeting, deciding to continue following state and federal guidelines once the governor made his announcement.
“We want everybody to understand that these plans are put in place to protect everybody,” said Commission Chair Theresia Gillie in a phone interview Thursday. “It’s not the worst thing you can do. Just try to be reasonable and patient through all this. Find a mask that is comfortable for you and it’ll be easier to wear.”
