For the health and safety of residents and staff, the City of Mankato has canceled this year’s Night to Unite event, which is usually held the last Tuesday in August.

Residents who wish to host social gatherings are encouraged to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Minnesota Department of Health including:

  • Limit group size.
  • Remind guests to stay home if they are sick.
  • Host gathering outdoors if possible.
  • Wear face coverings when less than six feet apart from people or when indoors.
  • Ensure social distancing of six feet between guests from different households is followed.
  • Limit contact with commonly touched surfaces or shared items.
  • Limit the number of people serving food; or encourage guests to bring their own food.

Clean hands often and disinfect commonly touched areas.
