Prairie Village extends mask mandate to Oct. 31, moves to hybrid city meetings

Prairie Village mask mandate

Prairie Village' mask mandate, which went into effect on Aug. 24, has been extended to Oct. 31, following a nearly unanimous vote by the city council on Monday night. The city is also moving to hybrid meetings beginning in October. File image.

The Prairie Village City Council on Monday approved extending a citywide mask mandate through the end of October and also okayed a move to hybrid city meetings.

Citing the fact that the CDC still considers Johnson County an area of high transmission of the disease — along with noting the support of the county health department — the council nearly unanimously approved extending Prairie Village’s mask order until Oct. 31.

The original mask mandate would have expired on Sept. 30.
