The Muskogee City Council has passed a mask mandate in the city due to surging COVID-19 infections in the city and statewide.

Muskogee citizens are required to wear masks in public.

There are no penalties assigned yet for non-compliance, but non-compliant citizens will be warned to wear masks in public.

Masks have been shown to decrease transmission rates of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, which has killed more than 250,000 people in the United States this year. The masks do not provide significant protection to the wearers, but do help non-symptomatic wearers from transmitting the disease to others.

The council will revisit possible penalties for noncompliance later. The County Commissioners earlier declared a state of emergency in the county due to the disease.
