ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo (KMOX) - County Executive Steve Ehlmann says he has "faith that the citizens of St. Charles County will do the right thing without government coercion." He says he won't follow St. Louis City and County, who are instituting a face mask requirement starting this weekend.
He says those aged 20 to 40 really need the reminder since cases in that group have tripled.
Ehlmann stated in a press release, "It is proven that wearing a mask helps stop the spread. It's time for everyone to step up and take personal responsibility."
