“No stick,’ Mayor Miro promises during mask mandate - Fox 44

Unlike more open-minded cities like Barre, in Burlington “Masks Mean Business.” Still, Mayor Miro promises “no stick” for the non-compliant.

"Public health is good for business,” Mayor Weinberger said. “It turns out, the strategies that suppress the virus and keep us healthy are also the same strategies that will allow people to come out and support our businesses again, and feel safe doing so.” Businesses were asking for a common standard on wearing masks, and City Council approved a resolution to make them mandatory on Monday. Still, some are wondering how the rule will be enforced. Even before the new measures, a large majority of customers were already donning masks. “The city is not going to be writing tickets, there’s no stick from the city for people that don’t comply with this,” Mayor Weinberger said. “People should understand that retailers and establishments, on their own, can decide that they don’t want to provide service to anyone not complying with public health regulations.”
