SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake County Council will vote Thursday on whether to overturn the current mask mandate.

The 4 p.m. session will be held without any public comment, a departure from Tuesday's session in which numerous people spoke in support or against the mandate put in place Friday.

According to the release from the council, a vote on the mask mandate is the only thing on the agenda.
