MARION — Beginning Monday, the city of Marion is asking residents to wear masks when visiting city buildings.
Tom Treharne, community development director and acting city manager, updated the City Council on the new plan during Thursday night’s meeting.
“We’ve had an uptick in COVID across the country and in Linn County,” Treharne said. “Most of us have read the news and know there’s a lot of changes
“While this is not a mandate, I trust people will respect it.”
Treharne said infection rates in the area will be monitored, and the city will see if further action is needed.
“We’re getting about 15 to 20 people in City Hall from the public a day,” he said. “We would ask the public to use online services if they can.”
While Marion isn’t mandating masks in its facilities, Linn County and Cedar Rapids are.
On Friday, Linn County announced its plan to require masks in county facilities beginning Monday and Cedar Rapids implemented a mask mandate in its facilities Tuesday.
