[ARCHIVED] Effective August 9. 2021: Face Masks Required in Indoor Public Places

Per the Jackson County, Missouri Health Order, face masks are now required in all indoor public places. 

The health order aligns with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Jackson County Health Department and is supported by Jackson County public school district superintendents and the region’s Chief Medical Officers. The public health order is in response to the rising number of COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations due, in part, to the highly-contagious Delta variant and our region’s low vaccination rates.

According to a new state law, the County Executive and Health Director’s authority to issue public health orders is now limited to 30 days. Any extension of this order beyond 30 days will require the support of a majority of the Jackson County Legislature.

The full press release and health order can be viewed here:
