Johnson County’s last citywide mask mandate in Roeland Park has expired

By a 5-4 vote on Monday, the Roeland Park City Council allowed its citywide mask order to expire at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 16. Some councilmembers expressed concern that rising case numbers in Johnson County showed the continued need for a mask mandate through at least the end of the year. File image.
