JoCo mayors get bleak picture of current COVID-19 situation — Are more city mask mandates coming?

Johnson County masks

Mayors of at least 13 Johnson County cities joined a call Friday with county health officials, who painted an increasingly dire picture of surging cases' impact on local schools. Though four cities have recently institute new mask mandates, it was unclear from the call if other mayors and cities had the appetite for their own mask orders. File image.

The mayors of Johnson County received a dire picture this morning of schools on the verge of closing and COVID-19 cases sky high.

But they were silent on the likelihood that any more city mask mandates will be forthcoming, after four northeast Johnson County cities this week instituted new orders set to begin Tuesday.
