City of Sturgeon to Vote on Mask Mandate

The City of Sturgeon is moving toward a mask mandate.

The board of aldermen and mayor voted 3-2 during a meeting last night (Monday) to write an ordinance making mask-wearing mandatory in Sturgeon.

Mayor Steve Crosswhite said making masks optional had not worked, and also said neighboring cities of Centralia and Hallsville are considering similar moves, as is the Sturgeon R-V School District.

A special meeting is planned for tomorrow night (Wednesday) at 6pm to vote on the final ordinance.
