The Sioux City council took action surrounding COVID-19 and face coverings. As Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer reports, they wish more could be done as local health officials track an increase in cases.
The Sioux City Council strongly recommends citizens wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Last week, a group of concerned citizens presented a petition asking the council to take action with a resolution for a mask mandate.
Council members say their hands are tied with the state when it comes to a mandate.
