This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, West Lafayette residents are asking about masks. Mayor John Dennis says the city is finalizing a "mandatory mask policy". What does enforcement look like? Where and when should citizens wear their masks? And how do people navigate mask-wearing from West Lafayette to Lafayette, where a similar mandate is not currently planned?

We’ll also discuss how the city is working with Purdue University on COVID-19 mitigation ahead of next month’s start to the school year. What’s going smoothly, and where are the roadblocks? How will West Lafayette continue to partner with the school over the coming year?

Plus, how are local school corporations—and parents—handling their own reopening plans?
