Mask Up MN – Chamber Update

July 27, 2020

Hello Chisago County Businesses!

In collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Health, the Chisago County Chambers of Commerce are working together to distribute a one-time allotment of disposable masks. Please keep in mind that these masks will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis and quantity available will be based on demand. There is no fee for these masks but there is a finite number of them.

Each county throughout the state will receive a shipment based on population. We will only be distributing masks to businesses within Chisago County. If you have a business outside of Chisago County, we recommend that you reach out to that local chamber.

Please fill out this mask request form and your Chamber Team will be in touch shortly with pick up/ delivery information: https://form.jotform.com/93226009858160

This initiative was designed to prevent businesses from having to turn away customers, clients, and visitors. Here is a news report giving some background:https://www.fox9.com/news/statewide-effort-to-distribute-4-million-masks-to-minnesota-businesses-before-mandate-takes-effect

We do recommend that if you have a long term need for additional masks that you begin seeking those resources as soon as possible. This initiative is not intended to be a long terms solution, rather a starting point to help businesses implement the mask requirement.

Thank you for your help and support in this initiative!

Sincerely,

Chamber Directors from North Branch, Falls Chamber, Rush City, Chisago Lakes, & Chisago County Public Health
