Will Governor Walz make wearing masks mandatory in Minnesota? The Governor said Monday he’s thinking about it.

“I often say everything’s on the table and that is no exception,” said Walz. “That’s been a part of the discussion since the beginning of the pandemic.”

Walz says wearing masks is the quickest way government can ease restrictions on businesses.

“If you are for the economy opening up and for restrictions being lifted, the surest way to do that is to wear a mask,” said Walz.

Walz says he prefers the carrot before the stick approach to encourage people to wear masks
