WAUWATOSA — The Wauwatosa Common Council has voted to allow fully vaccinated people to resume indoor activities without being required to wear a face mask, following CDC guidance issued last week.

Tosa joins both Milwaukee and Racine in dropping their mask mandate on Tuesday.

The order approved by Tosa's council states that "individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may resume normal indoor and outdoor activities without the requirement of wearing a face covering or physically distancing, except in healthcare settings or as otherwise required by law."

The city also acknowledged that businesses and other establishments may set their own rules when it comes to masks.
