I understand there is a mask mandate for the City of Fredericksburg in effect until Feb. 28. Please explain to me why it is not enforced at city council meetings.

Approximately half of our citizens who attend these meetings do not wear masks. Is the mask mandate only in effect for the tourists on Main Street? Who is responsible for enforcing the mandate – the city council, the mayor, the police, those citizens who follow the mandate and wear their mask?

I’d like to know who enforces the mandate because it sure looks like those who should be involved are not doing their job.

No mask, no entry. Simple!
