I saw this tonight – Wichita mayor is pushing for citywide mask mandate: https://www.ksn.com/news/health/coronavirus/coronavirus-in-kansas/wichita-mayor-is-pushing-for-citywide-mask-mandate/. Much longer article. Except when I am eating or drinking at a restaurant, I use a mask. I don’t wear it riding my bicycle as it fogs up my glasses. Still waiting on the mask I ordered in August that had to be redone as the company redesigned it. I expect it will arrive in the not too distant future. The company has been keeping people updated as they learn more from the company who is building the masks.

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple is pushing for a citywide mask mandate. It comes just one day after the county lifted it’s restrictions.
Per Governor Kelly’s Executive Order 20-68, a mask mandate is still in effect in Sedgwick County public places which will expire at the end of the month.
This means, the city will have the state’s mask mandate to follow for now, but if the governor does not enact a new executive order, the restrictions for the city will no longer be applicable.
This will give Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple time to discuss with council members as the conversations continue to split the aisle of the Wichita City Council.
