TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum says he expects the city’s mask mandate for the public will be allowed to expire on April 30th. Bynum says Tulsa Health Department officials have seen no spike in coronavirus cases after spring break, and if the trend continues he will support the department’s recommendation to lift the mandate.

Bynum said private businesses are allowed to require masks and restaurant and bar employees must also wear a mask. Events with more than 150 people must also meet spacing requirements and events of more than 500 people must have a safety plan approved by health officials.
