VT no-mask mandate petition has 3,000 signatures, and growing

(Editor’s note: Vermont Daily takes no position on the “To Mask or Not To Mask” debate, but in the interests of public information is publishing this email from Vermonters Against Mask Mandates.)

There is an online petition circulating in Vermont that has over 3,000 signatures. 

It was created on Tuesday, July 28. It states simply: Let the governor of Vermont know that you oppose mask mandates and the decision to wear a mask or not needs to be a CHOICE

There is a growing body of Vermonters who do not support mask mandates (in addition to any other medically inspired mandates which includes vaccine mandates) and they deserve a voice. 

Vermont handled Covid WITHOUT a statewide mask mandate in place. It is our opinion that there is no such emergency in Vermont that would necessitate ordering citizens to cover their noses and mouths. 

In lieu of the recent CDC update to the Covid death data, it has cemented our resolve even further.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss this topic. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you do, too!

Here is a link to the petition: No mask mandates in Vermont.
