Effective Thursday, people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to wear masks in City of Lawrence-owned buildings, the city announced.
“Those who are unvaccinated, including City employees and members of the public, are still required to wear a face covering when in a City building,” according to a city news release.
In addition, the Lawrence City Commission will move to hybrid meetings, beginning with the Tuesday, Dec. 7 meeting. Commissioners will attend in person at City Hall.
Meetings will continue to be livestreamed and broadcasted, and virtual participation will still be an option.
“Those who want to provide public comment may continue to do so virtually or by attending the meeting in-person. For in-person participants who are required to or choose to wear a mask, masks may be removed while making remarks at the podium,” according to a city news release.
“Staff is working to make adjustments for other city boards and commissions to move to a hybrid format in the first quarter of 2022.”
City buildings include the Lawrence Public Library and Parks and Recreation facilities.
