Required face coverings excluded from MN permit to carry law

A post from the Clay County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page.

MOORHEAD — The Executive Order requiring face masks in Minnesota does allow people to carry firearms and wear face masks.

Normally, people can't legally carry a firearm if their face is covered.

In a Facebook post, The Clay County Sheriff's Department confirmed the state's new mask requirement changes that allow people to carry a firearm with the proper permits and wear a protective face covering for COVID-19.

The department also confirmed the change with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.

The Clay County Sheriff's Department also said they are taking an educational approach to enforcing the mask mandate, instead of issuing citations.
