Masks to be optional in all county-owned buildings June 1


ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - Beginning June 1, masks will not be required in all county-owned buildings.

These buildings include the Rousseau Centre and the Allen County Courthouse.

While the Courthouse is following the updated policy, exceptions will be possible if a need is determined by a judge or magistrate.

The announcement coincides with a similar announcement made by Mayor Henry that face coverings at Citizens Square and all other Fort Wayne municipally-owned buildings will become optional on the same date.

According to officials the ongoing vaccinations and reductions in local COVID-19 cases were contributing factors in lessening the mask requirements.
