Municipal Court implements mask requirement as COVID levels ‘steadily increase’
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Topeka’s Municipal Court has re-implemented a face mask requirement for employees and visitors to follow starting Monday, December 5.
According to the City of Topeka, as the Kansas Health Dept. of Health and Environment monitors the spread of Influenza, RSV – or Respiratory Syncytial Virus, and other viruses during the winter season -- the city wanted to implement the requirement so the courts can remain open to the public and carry out its role of administrating justice.
All other City of Topeka buildings have mask-wearing as optional. However, the city wants to ask the public to practice social distancing, regular handwashing, and other practices.
