KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Roeland Park City Council voted Monday night to extend an indoor mask mandate in the city until Nov. 15.

In August, the city voted to implement the mandate and it was set to expire on Oct. 19.

Under the mandate, anyone older than five is required to wear a mask in public places.

The mandate comes with exceptions including people with certain medical conditions, people who are eating or drinking and children younger than five. People engaging in certain religious ceremonies are also exempt.
