Under the current emergency order, all Kansas Citians must wear a face covering or mask while indoors in an area of public accommodation. These spaces include, but are not limited to, grocery and retail stores, special events, and public transit. While not required, all Kansas Citians are strongly encouraged to wear masks outdoors in any situation where they are unable to maintain six feet of social distance from others.
More information about face coverings and the emergency order can be found at KCMO.gov.
