North Mankato City Administrator John Harrenstein says things have been going well at the Spring Lake Park Swim Facility, even with social distancing.

He says there haven’t been any reports of COVID spreading at the facility.

As to if North Mankato will enact a face mask ordinance?

Harrenstein says he doesn’t see that happening anytime soon, in part because North Mankato doesn’t have for example to big box stores or as many bars/restaurants where Blue Earth County’s COVID spread has been linked to.

He says they’ve taken several measures to keep North Mankato citizens safe, but he understands that not everyone agrees.
