LAWRENCE (AP) — The city of Lawrence and Douglas County are adding to the local mandates aimed at controlling the more contagious COVID-19 Delta variant. They announced the mask requirements Friday.
The mandates will apply to employees and visitors of the county and city-owned or operated buildings regardless of their vaccination status.
The rules take effect Monday and apply whether someone has been vaccinated against COVID-19 or not.
Their announcements came the same day the University of Kansas imposed an indoor mask mandate at its main campus in Lawrence and a satellite campus in Johnson County.
In Manhattan in northeast Kansas, both the city and Kansas State University are requiring masks inside their buildings.
