Mask Ordinance Expires in Carbondale

The City of Carbondale’s mask ordinance expired on Friday, June 11 as Illinois moved to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan. City officials say those who are fully vaccinated may enter city buildings without a face covering. Masks and social distancing are still recommended for unvaccinated people, per Phase 5 guidance. The city council strongly encouraged all residents to get vaccinated as soon as possible. The Jackson County Health Department will administer vaccines at the health department in Murphysboro two days a week: on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Thursdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
