STILLWATER, Okla. (KFOR) – Stillwater City Council members passed a measure requiring community members to wear either a face mask or facial covering when in public.
The Stillwater City Council unanimously passed the measure Thursday night.
The council’s decision to mandate mask-wearing in public comes after Norman city officials passed a measure requiring masks be worn in public.
Gov. Kevin Stitt said during a press conference on Thursday that he will not pass a statewide mask requirement, but the state will not infringe on a local municipality’s decision to require mask be worn in public.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health website states that “everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public.”
