Carbondale Reinstates Mask Mandate, Requiring Vaccination for City Employees

CARBONDALE – The Carbondale City Council voted unanimously to reinstate a city-wide mask mandate effective immediately at Monday’s special City Council meeting.

The council also approved an ordinance adopting a policy mandating Carbondale City employees receive the COVID-19 vaccination.

The City’s mask mandate reinforces Governor Pritzker’s statewide mandate, requiring masks be worn indoors regardless of vaccination status, also requiring all employers within the city require employees to wear face coverings when social distancing is not possible or when employees interact with customers, regardless of their vaccination status.
