St. Louis, Missouri 2021-07-24 10:02:00 –

ST. Louis (KMOV.com)-Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmidt said he would file a proceeding to prevent future mask mandates in the city and county of St. Louis.

St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones and St. Louis County Executive Samuel Page said the Maskman Date will come into effect on Monday. This mission addresses the increase in COVID-19 infections in the St. Louis region and around Missouri.

In public places in the city and county of St. Louis, the obligation for everyone to wear a mask has been revived.

On Friday night, Schmidt tweeted that he would file a proceeding to suspend mandates, calling it “madness.”

“Citizens of St. Louis and St. Louis County are not eligible — they are free people,” he said. “As their Attorney General, I will file a proceeding on Monday to stop this madness.”

Starting Monday, all persons over the age of 5 in the city and county of St. Louis are required to wear masks indoors in public places and on public transport, regardless of vaccination status. Authorities also urge people to wear masks outdoors if they belong to a group. Persons sitting in restaurants and bars eating and drinking, and persons with disabilities who cannot wear masks are exempt from the obligation.
