Jamey Helgeson: Masks still required at LIFE

Even though the CDC and President Biden announced that “fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance,” and Gov. Tim Walz ended the Minnesota mask mandate, masks will still be required at both indoor and outdoor activities until further notice.

We will notify everyone if anything changes.

If you haven’t seen the May-June 2021 newsletter, we have added a few more in-person programs and we will continue to add more in the coming months.  If you have any program suggestions, let us know.

Our virtual programs will continue over the summer and most likely into the fall and winter months. If you haven’t had a chance to join, register today. It’s a lot of fun. If you don’t have the technology needed to attend, contact us to borrow a Chromebook.

Capacity limits

Right now we are keeping capacity limits low to keep everyone safe. We will slowly and safely increase these limits over the next few months. Stay tuned.

Remember if you aren’t feeling well, please stay home. Give us a call and we can see if a credit can be added to your account.
