RILEY COUNTY (KSNT) – The Riley County Commission has voted Thursday to drop the area’s mask mandate.
The decision comes in a two-to-one vote, and will take effect at 11:59 p.m. Sunday. This is earlier than the commission previously decided when it voted to extend the mandate until May 16.
“Individuals are still encouraged to wear masks when in large groups or indoors with those who are not fully vaccinated,” said Riley County Health Officer Julie Gibbs. “However, it is no longer mandatory.”
