City of Fargo Facilities Masking and Occupancy Guidelines Return to Pre-COVID Standards


City of Fargo facilities have resumed pre-COVID operations relating to masking and occupancy policies. Masks are no longer required by vaccinated guests or staff within City of Fargo facilities and seating arrangements within City meeting rooms have returned to full capacity. Guests and staff are welcome to continue wearing masks if they are not vaccinated or are otherwise more comfortable doing so. The City of Fargo encourages the continuation of best practices in illness prevention, including proper hand hygiene and regular disinfection of frequently touched surfaces.

There are three exceptions to this policy change:

  1. MATBUS will continue requiring masks for all riders and staff through September 13, 2021 per federal requirements

  2. The Fargo Public Library will require guests and staff to wear masks at all three locations through June 15, 2021 per policy enacted by the Library Board.

  3. Fargo Cass Public Health will require guests and staff to wear masks in clinic areas and client contact areas (including the Gladys Ray Shelter) per recommendation form the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for healthcare settings.
