Polk County has consistently followed CDC recommendations related to masking and social distancing. Beginning on Monday, February 28 masks will no longer be required in Polk County Conservation buildings. Those facilities include: 
  • Jester Park Nature Center
  • Jester Park Outdoor Recreation & Wellness Center 
  • Natural Resources Headquarters

Note that a mask requirement may be reinstated in the future if local community conditions change, triggering a CDC recommendation to require masks. Guests to our facilities are welcome to electively wear masks at any point in time.
