This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: the number of mask mandates to slow the spread of COVID-19 is growing across the country. This week, the city of West Lafayette released an executive order requiring face coverings for its residents in public spaces – but right now, the city of Lafayette doesn’t plan to do the same.

In our talk with Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski, we’ll discuss why Lafayette won’t be mandating masks, and how officials will still encourage citizens to wear them. And while the city doesn’t currently plan on a mandate, could that change in the future? What information will the mayor be relying on to make a decision?

Plus, the local impact of the continued pause to the state’s reopening plans.
