If you don't have a mask, they will be available to the public and employees upon entering.

In addition, anyone visiting the Waite Park Senior Center will also be required to wear a mask.

The city council plans to reevaluate the masking requirement at their next meeting on February 7th.

Earlier this week, The Benton County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution requiring all county staff to wear face masks in county buildings with the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
