Post #622: Groundswell for mandatory mask laws for essential businesses

Posted on April 11, 2020

We don’t want to be the last people to do this.  I doubt that Vienna Town Council has the moxie to do it.  Start emailing the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.   We need this yesterday.

Long Beach CA now has a mandatory mask ordinance for all essential businesses.  That was only issued yesterday.

Montgomery County, MD is getting set to do the same thing.  If you’re inside any essential business, you must wear a mask.

Los Angeles, CA passed a mandatory mask law for essential businesses two days ago.

Inc says that every employer should mandate masks.  Which, again, tells me that many are not.

As of two days ago, several localities were passing laws requiring that grocery stores provide employees with masks.

Municipalities are passing mandatory mask laws.  Including Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Many of the counties in South Florida are now requiring masks in essential businesses.

The state of New Jersey requires masks when in essential businesses, as of yesterday.  But Hoboken required that almost a week ago.

And if this report is correct, five days ago, the DoD decided that anyone on DoD property has to wear a mask.  They’re not screwing around with this.  Neither should we.

I could go on.  Just Google it and skip down a page or two.  I didn’t come close to exhausting the list of governments that are now requiring masks for anyone entering into an essential business.

In the Commonwealth, essential business are all that’s left open.  Let’s get a mandatory mask law in place in Fairfax County.
