OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Council approved a mask ordinance Friday evening, according to a report by KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City.
KOCO confirmed that the mandate passed 6-3, and the mandate will take effect immediately.
The ordinance requires a face covering to be worn in public spaces, the report said. The mask must cover the nose and mouth.
If a person refuses to wear a mask, then there is a $9 fine for the first offense, a $9 fine for the second offense and a $100 fine for the third offense.
However, kids age 10 or under are not required to wear a mask and there are several other exceptions for the ordinance.
The mandate is set to end Sept. 8 unless the council adds an extension.
