SLC mayor terminates Executive Order that required the wearing of masks in city buildings, cars
SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall signed the termination of Executive Order No.3 on Tuesday that required the wearing of masks in city buildings and vehicles.
The termination comes following a decline in COVID-19 case counts, and at the advice of the Salt Lake County Health Department and the CDC.
On July 28, 2021, Mayor Mendenhall signed Executive Order No. 3 to help protect the public against contracting COVID-19, or any of its variants. Executive Order No. 3 was issued in connection with the then-in-effect guidance from the CDC.
On Feb. 25, 2022, the CDC issued new guidelines regarding masks due to the declining COVID-19 case counts. The new guidelines state that individuals in “low” or “medium” communities are no longer required to wear masks.
Salt Lake County is a “medium” risk community, according to the CDC.
The termination of the order is effective immediately.
