Masks Required at Rumriver Art Center

Because the COVID-19 Omicron & Delta variants are shown to spread more easily, MDH and CDC recommend everyone, both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated, wear a mask in public, indoor settings in areas with substantial or high transmission. Anoka County is now classified as an area of high transmission. You can get more information on this from the Minnesota Department of Health here: https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/facecover.html As a result of this, Rumriver Art Center is requiring that all class participants (whether vaccinated or not) and staff wear masks while in the art center.
