Poll: Are you in favor of the new mask mandate?

Posted

Governor Dan McKee recently initiated a new, temporary indoor mask mandate and proof of vaccine requirements.
The revised policies, which took effect on Monday, Dec. 20, are broken down into the following three categories:

  • Retail businesses, restaurants, large congregational locations and entertainment venues with a capacity of 250 or more must require masks for employees and customers regardless of vaccination status.
  • Those businesses or venues who employ or can seat less than 250, the likes of dance studios and gyms, must require staff and patrons to wear masks if not vaccinated. Masks will be optional with proof of vaccination.
  • And lastly, those private and and public businesses outside of the first two categories, whom McKee said were among the first to initiate similar policies, should continue to require use of masks or proof of vaccination.


This poll inquires whether or not you are in favor of this new mandate. Be sure to sign up for our newsletters in order to receive the most up-to-date news within your communities and be alerted of future polls.
