Mask mandates are returning to Iowa as the city of Cedar Rapids announced earlier Tuesday that visitors to city-owned buildings will be required to wear a mask while inside buildings regardless of vaccination status.
“As of today, the Linn County area is coded as ‘red’ signifying a high level of community transmission,” the release states. “To maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, all visitors to city-owned buildings will be required to wear a mask while inside the building. The health and safety of our visitors to city buildings is our primary concern.”
City services to the public will continue to be fully operational and available online, via telephone and by email the release states.
