Rogers updates plan to repeal mask ordinance



ROGERS, Ark. — The City of Rogers says the CDC announcement does not directly affect the city’s mask mandate, but the mayor has released an update.

They say another concern has been the availability of COVID-19 vaccines to everyone eligible to get it.

An agenda item will be introduced at the next city council meeting on May 25 to lift the City of Rogers mask mandate.

This proposed repeal will go into effect on May 27. When the last bell rings at Rogers High School and Heritage High School.
