! Dubuque County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to extend the county’s mask mandate. The mandate requires anyone 3 years of age or older wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when in a public place with anyone who doesn’t live in their household. The mask mandate will remain in place until June 15 or when every county resident eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1B and wants one, has received one, whichever date comes sooner.
