Governor Kelly will make it mandatory to wear face masks in public on July 3.

Governor Laura Kelly said in her COVID-19 news conference Monday that she is making a statewide order to mandatorily wear masks in public.

The Governor says that while counties may order less stringent mask orders, a handful of counties have already implemented a similar order, such as Douglas County. She will also have to get approval from the state finance council in order to impose the order.

Governor Kelly says with the world hitting the somber milestone of 500,000 COVID-19 related deaths and 10 million positive cases it is more important than ever to keep each other safe.
