Mask mandate not on Tuesday City Council agenda
Several weeks ago, there was a lot of discussion about whether or not the City of Jenks should issue a mask mandate to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
There was discussion about a mask mandate being put on the Aug. 18 City Council agenda, so the Jenks City Council could vote on the issue to decide if it was going to become mandatory for Jenks residents to wear a mask while in public.
According to city officials, because the lower number of cases of COVID-19 in the city of Jenks and Jenks citizens stepping up and wearing masks on their own, a mask mandate is not on the City Council agenda for Tuesday.
City officials did say there is still a possibility of a mask mandate making its way onto a City Council agenda in early September if the COVID-19 numbers rise between now and then, but if the numbers do not rise, it is unlikely.
