During the Cedar Falls City Council meeting on May 17, 2021, the City Council voted to allow the current Cedar Falls mask mandate resolution to expire on May 19, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. The mandate originally passed on September 8, 2020, and required anyone within city limits to wear a face-covering in public settings when unable to remain six or more feet apart from others with exemptions made for health or public safety reasons.
Although masks are not required, the City does remind the community that if they do prefer to wear a mask, particularly if they are at high risk for COVID-19 complications, to feel free to continue to do so. Please be aware that private businesses, schools, universities, libraries, and organizations may still have private mask mandates in place.
As Cedar Falls youth camps draw closer including at the Hearst Center for the Arts and the Cedar Falls Recreation and Fitness Center, staff will be in communication with participants regarding safety guidelines.
