A Lakes Area Community that recently passed a Face Covering and Mask Mandate sees that Law go into effect today.
The City of Branson West passed their mandate at their Board of Aldermen Meeting last week. The Ordinance, similar to ones already passed in Branson and Forsyth, mandates Face Coverings or Masks in Public Settings both outside and inside with certain exceptions and situations. In addition, signs will be required to be posted at business requiring Face Masks and maintaining Social Distancing. A fine of up to $50 can be levied against violators of the law.
The Mandate can be renewed for up to three successive 30-day periods unless rescinded earlier.
A link to the Ordinance can be found with this link.
