White said even with the news, Jackson County residents shouldn’t let their guard down against COVID-19. “As I have said from the very beginning of this pandemic, Jackson County’s decisions will be led by science,” White said. “In light of the most current information available, and in light of the CDC’s recommendations, we are rescinding our current health order today.” “While this is welcome news for many, we cannot forget that this virus is still present and poses a risk to our residents, especially those who are not fully vaccinated,” White said. “People are still contracting COVID-19 and dying from it. We need everyone to take personal responsibility and get vaccinated so we can truly put this devastating virus behind us.”

The announcement follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s revision to its guidance for fully vaccinated individuals. The county announced Friday that Jackson County Executive Frank White is allowing the health order – which required masks in indoor businesses and places of public accommodation – to expire.

The new guidance states that individuals who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 can resume activities — both indoor or outdoor, large or small — without wearing a mask or social distancing. Exceptions to this new guidance include health care settings, correctional facilities, homeless shelters and public transportation. Jackson County is joining Kansas City, Missouri, and Clay and Johnson counties with its decision to end an emergency COVID-19 health order that required indoors masking.

Masks will still be required in county buildings and facilities for staff and visitors until further notice. Jackson County is the latest city in the metro area to remove mask mandates. Jackson County Government and the Jackson County Health Department fully support the efforts of employers and organizations to protect their workers and customers when vaccination status cannot be determined, White said.

White said businesses and other spaces continue to have the right to set their own mask requirements for entry. Although the expiration of the order means that wearing masks indoors will no longer be mandated across the county, county officials said masks remain strongly recommended for individuals who are not fully vaccinated.
