County Executive Sam Page appears in a mask at the July 2020 ribbon cutting for 9 Mile Garden food truck plaza in Affton.

Masks are back on the agenda for the St. Louis County Council, which is holding a special meeting at 3 p.m. today to strictly discuss masking.

The meeting was called for by Chairwoman and 1st District Councilman Rita Days after the Committee of the Whole met Thursday for almost four hours to discuss the issue. 

Last month, County Executive Sam Page ordered a mask mandate which was quickly voted against 5-2 by the council. 

The council may vote again at the meeting Friday.
