ST. LOUIS — A new mask mandate was issued in St. Louis County and the City of St. Louis. The mandate takes effect Monday.
The mandate says everyone in indoor public places and public transportation needs to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. People sitting and eating or drinking at a bar or restaurant, people who have a disability that prevents them from putting on or taking off a mask and children under 5 are not required to wear masks.
