Unvaccinated members of the public are  encouraged to wear masks when entering the county buildings.”

During this phase, most Goodhue County employees will return to in-person work. All staff will be required to screen themselves daily for COVID-19, maintain social distancing and wear masks when distancing is not possible, according to the news release.
