WICHITA COUNTY (KFDX/KJTL) — Wichita County commissioners announced Monday that masks will be required inside all county buildings until June 1.
County Judge Woody Gossom said it was approved so the policy would be uniform.
Gossom added although the new order is not a legal offense, visitors will not be allowed to enter Wichita County facilities if this order isn’t followed.
For people who have a court appearance, they must also follow the order. This order will reaim effective unless removed by additional court orders.
Gov. Greg Abbott is lifting the statewide mask mandate on March 10. However, hospitals, government buildings, colleges, airports, and private businesses such as “big box” retailers can continue to enforce the use of face masks, if they see fit.
