Yankton’s mask mandate to expire at the end of the month

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- The Yankton City Commission took no action on a face mask resolution extension at their meeting Monday night, which means the mandate will expire on March first.

Dr Mary Milroy, a member of the city Health Board, told the commission the mandate has had a positive impact.

The only public comment came from downtown businessman Curt Bernard.

Commissioner Amy Miner says they can dial up the precautions quickly if needed.

Active COVID-19 infections have continually dropped in Yankton since January.
