(as of August 26, 2020)
With health and safety at the forefront, our Community Education team has made adjustments to our programs to meet state guidelines and ensure a safe environment for all participants. These guidelines may change in order to continue to meet health and safety standards during the pandemic. This page will stay up-to-date with new changes as it relates to our programs.
Per state executive order and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), individuals 5 years and older are required to wear cloth face coverings when in a public building, this includes school buildings (Some exemptions apply). Therefore, Orono Schools is requiring those who enter any school buildings to wear face coverings while on campus. Face coverings do not have to be worn during a fitness class or program that requires physical activity where the level of exertion makes wearing a face covering difficult. Note: Face coverings are not recommended for children under 2.
We are asking everyone to do a quick health screen at home before attending any Community Education program. Check:
If the answer is yes – stay home and get well!
