Douglas County will keep its mask mandate after county leaders didn’t come to a vote on removing the current health order or creating a new one

Lawrence, KS – According to the officials, this means the health order will be in place for at least another week.

Coming into the meeting, the health officials had recommended lifting all COVID-19 related restrictions, including the county’s mask mandate based on low case numbers and the number of vaccinations.

Commissioners will take up the issue again when they meet on May 26.
