Our students faced incredible challenges during this pandemic, and continue to do so. $75 million will go toward providing solutions for academic enrichment and mental health support, starting this summer. This is just one of the many steps we’re working on to ensure our students can bounce back and thrive in their education.
The Latest on COVID Requirements
Next Friday, May 28, the remaining capacity and distancing limits will come to an end, including for indoor events and gatherings. Some measures will remain, including the requirement that businesses and venues have plans to keep their employees and customers safe - as they have since the beginning of the pandemic.
Besides that, much of our state is opening up to an extent that we haven’t seen since last year. Though the City of Richfield has no mask mandate, businesses are still able to continue theirs, and Minneapolis and St. Paul still have their indoor mask requirement in place. For the time being, the best course of action will probably be to make sure you still have a mask on hand when heading out.

The best way to ensure we can get back to an even more complete normal is to get vaccinated, and encourage others to do the same. If you or a loved one haven’t yet, there are many open appointments in our area. You can either sign up for Minnesota’s Vaccine Connector, or look up appointments near you here. We’ve all worked incredibly hard to reach this point, and the more Minnesotans that get vaccinated, the more we can stave off more contagious variants.
As we work to finally close the book on COVID-19, and complete our work at the State Legislature, please feel free to reach out with any questions or comments you may have.
