TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa City Council has another meeting scheduled with masks on the agenda that could bring about a different kind of face covering legislation.

The city council's agenda for their Wednesday night meeting includes a consideration and potential vote for or against a mask "resolution."

A resolution would only "encourage" Tulsans to wear masks as opposed to requiring them.

Wednesday's meeting comes after last week's special meeting during which citizens and councilors debated whether or not a mandate should be put in place.

That meeting ended with councilors deciding to table the discussion until Wednesday's regularly scheduled meeting.

Both the mandate and the resolution are still on the agenda. The council could take action on both items, on neither item or on one item and not the other.

Councilors are also expected to consider a resolution encouraging Tulsans ages 12 and older to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. and will allow for public comment.
