ROGERS, AR—The City of Rogers announces they plan to introduce an ordinance to repeal the current mask ordinance that will be presented at the next City Council meeting on Tuesday, 5/25. The proposed repeal has an effective date of 5/27 at 3:34 PM when the last bells ring at Rogers High School and Heritage High School.
The Board of Rogers Public Schools determined to finish the school year with masks in place in the district. Mayor Hines and the City Council have been committed to helping finish the school year strong.
Additionally, when the State of Arkansas mask mandate was lifted, the COVID-19 vaccine was not available to all categories of recipients. Allowing residents of Rogers the opportunity to obtain the vaccine, if they so choose, was also a deciding factor.
The City of Rogers mask ordinance remains in place until it is repealed by City Council or as long as Governor Hutchinson’s emergency executive order is in place.
