Mecklenburg County Passes Measure To Officially End The Indoor Mask Mandate


Last night the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) met to discuss the indoor mask mandate. They ultimately voted to officially end the mandate, while also encouraging individuals in high-risk groups to continue to wear face coverings in public indoor settings.

The mandate will officially end on February 26th.

“Current trends point to a shift in COVID-19 conditions and indicate the need for a revised response plan that encompasses prevention, surveillance, and equitable distribution of resources,” said Mecklenburg County Public Health (MCPH) Director Dr. Raynard Washington.

How do you feel about the ending of the mandate?
