The Claremore City Council voted 5-4 to extend a citywide mask and social distancing ordinance to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The current ordinance expires on Feb. 28. 2021, and will resume on March 2, 2021, and extend through June 30, 2021 or until it is repealed, modified or extended by the City Council through a subsequent ordinance. The emergency clause, which required a supermajority approval and would have allowed for immediate implementation, did not pass.
The ordinance requires individuals 10 years and older to wear a mask in public places. It also requires people to maintain six feet of distance between persons who are not part of the same household while in public places.
