ROLLA, Mo. (KY3) - City leaders in Rolla, Missouri will hold a public hearing Monday night as the city considers a mask mandate and other possible restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rolla city leaders says a mask mandate and other options are being considered due to a rise in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the city and Phelps County area since late October.

A task force has also explored other mitigation strategies, such as occupancy restrictions on businesses, special events and gatherings.

The public hearing starts at 6 p.m. Monday. It will be held at the Rolla Public Schools Administration Building at 500 Forum Drive.
