Greenwood County Commissioners Recommend Residents Wear Masks In Public Settings

Express No Intent To Enforce Governor’s Mandate At This Time

At 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30, Greenwood County Commissioners held a special meeting to discuss Governor Laura Kelly’s plans to mandate that Kansans wear masks in public, both in indoor and outdoor settings. Governor Kelly released orders on Thursday, July 2 mandating that masks be worn in all locations that social distancing cannot be followed.
