After rejecting a mask mandate last week, the Sioux Falls City Council is likely to pass a version that removes fines and other penalties.
Local health leaders support the measure regardless of enforcement.
Mayor TenHaken says removing penalties from the mask ordinance makes it easier to support.
“Enforceability and protecting law enforcement is a big concern of mine.”
TenHaken cast the tie-breaking vote against the ordinance last week.
But removing penalties isn’t the only thing that’s changed the mayor’s opinion on a mandate.
