Reinstate the Mask Ordinance in Mt. Pleasant, SC

Diane Tideman started this petition to Residents of Mt. Pleasant and

Yesterday, the Mount Pleasant Town Council voted to remove the ordinance that required wearing a face mask in establishments throughout the town of Mount Pleasant. We believe that this will have a direct and severe impact on businesses as people who are supporting a masking requirement will no longer go to those businesses if it is not required. We also believe that the rate of transmission has significantly dropped since the mask ordinance was in place and there are statistics to prove that.

Also removal of the mask requirement puts a tremendous burden on businesses that want to continue to support that requirement. Now they no longer have the backing of the Town Council’s ordinance to support and reinforce mask requirements for patrons to enter their business. If masks are not required, many people will stop going to businesses. We will be taking a huge step backwards.

The continued wearing of masks is a responsibility that we have to protect each other from this virus. There are proven statistics that masking does stop the spread. This concept supports keeping each other safe and healthy. It also allows more businesses to remain open. It is a small sacrifice for each of us to make in the face of this unprecedented pandemic.

Please sign this petition and forward it on to as many friends and neighbors as possible.  We want to make a very clear statement to town that their undoing of the masking ordinance was completely irresponsible and unfounded and we are asking to have it reinstated.
