Was the decision to mandate masks in City facilities made by City Council in a closed session?

No, an agenda item to discuss the current environment and statistics regarding new cases, hospitalizations, and immunizations was placed on every agenda for a City Council meeting since the facial covering mandate was instated in mid-March. At the May 11, 2021 public meeting, the Council determined that it was safe to lift the mandate based on the trend in Dallas County. During this meeting, Council came to a majority consensus and directed City staff to enact the policy change to require masks in City facilities. View the recording of the meeting.
