City Leaders Discuss New Mask Order

During a study session this week, City Council members discussed a possible mask mandate for Kirksville. The Adair County Health Department’s board voted against a mandate during a special meeting earlier this month. Jim LeBaron, Administrator of the health department, told the city council that the board will likely meet again before its regular meeting next month. Meanwhile, Lebaron says the focus continues to be on prevention. LeBaron told city council members that the health department plans to order 1,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine and 100 doses of the Moderna vaccine for an upcoming vaccination event.
