Towanda, Kansas — Kansas is preparing to launch a media campaign aimed at getting more people to wear masks to prevent the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
Some officials are skeptical that it moves the needle a lot.
A mask order from Democratic Governor Laura Kelly is expected to come into effect on Wednesday, but Kansas law allows 105 counties in the state to opt out.
The state has secured $ 1.5 million for television, radio, printed matter, and social media ads promoting masks that are set to start before Thanksgiving.
However, some officials are concerned that politics is driving resistance to the mask, and others have suggested that people have already been struck by messages in favor of the mask.
