Made in KC, Sandlot Goods making face masks for healthcare workers during COVID-19 pandemic

The Prairie Village City Council on Monday voted against adopting an ordinance that would have required people in the city limits to wear a face mask in public settings like stores. The city will instead form a group working to promote voluntary adherence to public health officials' strong recommendations to wear masks to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
