The Norman City Council on Tuesday voted to approve a mandatory mask ordinance.
The measure passed 8-1 at the virtual meeting, and applies to public places including stores, retail establishments, houses of worship, among others.
"By God, if Texas can do it, then we can do it too," Mayor Breea Clark said before the motion passed. "Our residents are worth it."
"The lives of Norman residents are worth fighting for," Clark tweeted late Tuesday evening.
