Mandatory Mask Use in Madison, WI

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


The City of Madison should require that people wear masks in public places and maintain physical distancing until health professionals say these practices are no longer needed. The alternative is more lockdowns, the failure of beloved local businesses, and serious illness and death. Not only does wearing a mask protect oneself, but it also protects others, especially our essential workers and those who do not have the luxury to work from home.

Mandatory mask use is already required in Madison municipal buildings, so it's evident that this measure CAN and SHOULD be put in place on a larger scale.

Additional demands: (1) Because a city-wide mask mandate would be unjust to the homeless population/those displaced from homes, we ask that a city-funded mask distribution program or process be added to this mandate. Our goal is to not create more barriers to health for those who may not be able to afford it.

Help us keep Madison healthy.
