Why is the City not requiring that masks be worn on city property?

After examining the current environment and statistics regarding new cases, hospitalizations, and immunizations, the Coppell City Council decided to lift the mask mandate in City facilities effective May 17, 2021. The City Council will analyze the statistics and current environment at the August 24 City Council meeting, and additional information will be available at that time. 

The City continues to encourage visitors to be respectful of other patrons. Stringent cleaning procedures and processes to encourage social distancing remain in place at city facilities. Various spaces have been retrofitted with protective barriers to decrease direct contact, and the City has invested in UV air purification technology at Town Center, Coppell Arts Center, and the Service Center. The City will continue to offer virtual and contactless programs, and many services are available online.
