Anger Expressed At Proposed Mask Regulation During Massachusetts Public Hearing
Some members of the Massachusetts public expressed their displeasure on Friday about a proposed state regulation that would formalize the mask order Governor Charlie Baker issued in early May.
The emergency regulation is before the Massachusetts Public Health Council.
The public had the opportunity to weigh in via an online video conference. The vast majority who spoke were opposed, including Tiffany Bevis.
While Baker's executive order requires any person over the age of two to wear a face covering, the new regulation would require them for those over five. Mask-wearing by children between two and five years old would be at the discrection of parents.
