Minneapolis Amends COVID-19 Emergency Regulation Following U.S. Supreme Court Ruling

  • January 24, 2022

On January 14, 2022, in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, the City of Minneapolis joined the City of St. Paul, Minnesota, in amending its Emergency Regulation to eliminate the requirement that employers comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards 1910.501(e) and (g), which govern employee vaccination status and testing requirements.

Minneapolis and St. Paul continue to require businesses where food or drink is sold for indoor onsite consumption to require patrons show proof of a completed vaccination series or a negative COVID-19 test obtained within three days (72 hours) prior to entry.

For more information, see our previous article, Minneapolis and St. Paul to Require Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test for Certain Businesses.
