Kingman Repeals Mask Requirement Imposed To Fight COVID-19

City of Kingman

Kingman has joined two other Mohave County cities in repealing a local mask mandate imposed to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The Miner newspaper reports that the Kingman City Council voted 4-3 on Tuesday to repeal the requirement that people over age 6 wear face coverings when entering places of business. Mayor Jen Miles had extended Kingman’s requirement in late August through 2020, and the council voted 5-2 in September to keep the proclamation in effect through Tuesday pending a review. Miles on Tuesday voted against lifting Kingman's mandate. Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City lifted their mask mandates last month.
