Wright County mandating masks as of Tuesday

CLARION — The Wright County Board of Health has issued a mask mandate in the county as part of a series of new emergency measures approved on Tuesday.

Masks are now required in all public indoor spaces in Wright County. If a mask must be removed for eating, like at a restaurant or bar, the individual needs to remain at least six feet from other individuals who are not in their group.

Public gatherings are limited to no more than 10 individuals, unless both compliance with masking and a six-foot distance between non-family groups can be maintained.

All participants and spectators at extracurricular school events must be masked at all times, and only parents are allowed to attend as in-person spectators.

Local law enforcement will be asked to intermittently spot check local restaurants and bars for compliance with the measures already mandated by the state of Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division.

The Wright County Board of Health noted that these restrictions will be reevaluated as soon as the risks to the state hospital system have diminished.
