Nixa’s emergency mask order will end at 11:59 p.m. on April 30. 

In a news release, Nixa’s mayor, Brian Steele, said, “I am now confident that by April 30, a significant portion of our population will have had an opportunity to be vaccinated, including the most vulnerable members of our community.”  He said he’s pleased to see COVID-19 infection rates in Christian County remain low over the last few weeks.  Steele said the city continues to work with regional health leaders and neighboring communities regarding ongoing pandemic response.

Businesses may still require masks on their property, according to city officials.

The City of Nixa encourages people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.  And, since the disease is still present in the community, citizens are encouraged to wear masks, wash hands often and maintain social distancing.  And if you feel sick, stay home and seek medical attention.
