May 26, 2021 - Mayor Tom Henry today announced that wearing masks at Citizens Square and all other municipally-owned buildings will become optional beginning June 1.
Municipally-owned buildings include the Fort Wayne Metropolitan Human Relations Commission office, Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department office and Parks and Recreation pavilions, community centers, and youth centers, the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory, and Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control.
Ongoing vaccinations and reductions in local COVID-19 cases were contributing factors in lessening the mask requirements. Leaders originally announced that a mask requirement would be in place at Citizens Square and all other municipally-owned buildings until July 4.
