Masks return to North Kansas City on Monday


NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. — North Kansas City Mayor Bryant DeLong issued a mask order starting on Monday, August 2 and ending until Saturday, August 28.

According to Kim Nakahodo, Interim City Administrator, the order is a mirror of the order Mayor Quinton Lucas put into effect for Kansas City, Missouri.

The order requires everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks indoor in areas of public accommodation.
