KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KWCH) - Beginning Aug. 2, all persons over the age of five years old will have to wear a face mask indoors in Kansas City, Missouri.

The mask mandate follows new guidance by the Center for Disease Control saying individuals, regardless of vaccine status, should wear a mask indoors. The reversal came as the country has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases with the rampant spread of the delta variant.

Missouri has the nation’s fourth-worst COVID-19 diagnosis rate over the past week, with one in every 360 people diagnosed with COVID-19.
