Cities of Cleveland, Dayton and Liberty extend mask order indefinitely

Starting at midnight, July 23, a new mask order in the cities of Cleveland, Dayton and Liberty will go into effect, thus replacing the expired mask order that was in effect for all of Liberty County until last week.

The new order, signed by Cleveland Mayor Richard Boyett, Dayton Mayor Caroline Wadzeck and Liberty Mayor Carl Pickett, requires all commercial entities inside the cities that provide goods and services directly to the public to develop and implement a health and safety policy. The purpose of the order is to help curb the number of COVID-19 cases in Liberty County.

“The policy must require, at a minimum, that all employees, customers, vendors and visitors, ten (10) years of age or older, wear face coverings over the nose and mouth when accessing areas of the commercial entity’s premises that involve close contact or proximity to employees or members of the public, where six feet of separation is not feasible,” the order states.

Some of the recommended face coverings include face shields, surgical masks, industrial masks, homemade masks, scarves, bandannas or handkerchiefs.

Businesses must post the health and safety policy in conspicuous locations to provide notice to employees, customers, vendors and visitors. Any business not in compliance with the order after midnight July 23 may be subject to a fine not to exceed $500 per violation.

The order does not have an expiration date. Instead it say the order will continue until it is modified, amended, rescinded or superseded.

    • That’s right and when you walk through restaurant doors it’s a portal on the other side we’ve called peace treaty while we eat Rona won’t get us either lol

    • If you have a child under 10, you as the parent can still make the child wear a mask. It just isn’t mandatory.

  1. I’m just wondering if the mayors are ready to be sued for this order when people start getting upper respiratory infection because of their over stepping people’s civil liberty’s. And what about people with ptsd, asthma and search things like that

    • If you have medical issues that prevent wearing a mask that’s all you have to say because hippa law I don’t have to go into detail of my medical issue

      • If you have medical issues, should you be out and about?
        By the way, it is:
        Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)



    🔺”CDC admitted they screwed up COVID19 infection counts and intentionally misled the public and have apologized, clarifying that the amount of people truly infected is much lower than what was originally reported — an error so egregious it made the director of the Harvard Global Health Institute say “how could the CDC make this mistake? This is a mess.”

    🔺The American Coronavirus Task Force also admitted to fudging the National COVID19 death count when Dr. Birx said the deaths are people who died “with” COVID19 not “from” COVID19, thus making the real death count much lower than what is currently being reported.

    🔺Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted masks won’t help against the virus and mask manufacturers are now including warnings that their products do not deter COVID19.

    🔺Fauci also said that continuing to close the country could cause irreparable damage.

    🔺CDC backtracked their initial claim that led governors to shutdown their states & clarified that COVID19 does not spread easily on surfaces.

    🔺Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo confirmed a recent health study showing that 70% of new infections actually originate at home, thus making stay at home orders one of the most dangerous mandates currently in place.

    🔺Trump stopped funding the WHO and threatened to cut off money permanently until they can prove they are no longer corruptly influenced by communist China after they lied to our country about human to human transmission of COVID19 in January.

    🔺The curve is flattened, the CDC, WHO, Dr. Fauci, our governors, and many more were completely wrong about the potential threat of this virus.

    🔺Even California is opening up sooner than anyone expected because the evidence contradicts the long standing and inaccurate narrative still upheld by the extremely dishonest & corrupt media.

    🔺If you are still living in fear, Don’t be. The media, global organizations, the government, and its agencies “mislead” the public.

    🔺People called those of us who knew this all along conspiracy theorists, but it turns out we were just following the facts!

    🔺Open up your businesses, churches, and homes. Don’t fall for the lies any longer. If you fell for the lies this time, wake up and join the army of truth seekers fighting on the front lines.

    🔺 WHO have just admitted that transmission of the virus from an asymptomatic carriers – the whole reason for the lockdown, is rare!! ie you could not spread it before showing any symptoms!!

    ⚠️ The CDC just confirmed a .4 to .26% death-rate for Covid 19. The death rate for the flu shot is .6. Twice as high as Covid!

    For that, we have:
    • Added nearly 6 trillion to national debt
    • Laid-off or furloughed 50 million workers
    • Placed 60 million on food stamps
    • Gone from 3.5%to 14.7% unemployment
    • Crippled the petroleum industry
    • Ruined the tourism industry
    • Bankrupted the service industry
    • Caused an impending meat and protein crisis
    • Threatened, fined, and arrested church leaders
    • Exacerbated mental health problems
    • Shut down schools and colleges
    • Given unbridled power to unelected officials
    • Increased suicides higher than COVID deaths
    • Delayed surgeries and treatments for profound illnesses
    • Infringed upon countless important civil liberties
    • Placed 300 million Americans on house arrest

    Bill Gates has placed himself in such a position of influence by heavily funding all corners to make this lie happen.
    We need to start treating it as the lie it is.
    Seriously our whole way of life is at stake, and they have plans to make it much worse now instroducing it as “the grand reset”, “the beginning of the 4th revolution” (ie a surveillence state of control, where everyone lives in what is essentially a strick open air prison where you are tracked, nothing is private, and everything is decided for you, and you have no rights whatsoever, and there can be no resistance.

    Welcome to their “new world order”.
    Don’t forget, we can imagine and bring about our own future.
    So lets together make it much different from their plan for us and get these people involved, jailed for fraud and terrorism and inducing sheer boredom!!
    Let’s share the riches of this beautiful world to make it a beautiful place where everyone can live together in abundance, peace, harmony and celebration!! Amen🇺🇸

    • Sounds like a whole load of horse crap to me, these conspiracy theorists need some mental help, they’ve been brainwashed into hating the science behind this and believing there is a higher “being” while there is no evidence of him being real.

  3. Just take your business outside of these cities and start hurting their pocketbooks, they’ll change things.

  4. I just gotta ask if I don’t wear my mask and get an illegally issued ticket of coarse I’m definitely not paying it so then what are you gonna do send me to jail where your letting people go due to covid hahaha 😂 great plan dumb asses

  5. People are so angry at the government about the mask mandate but have no problem spending that small business stimulus money they received. I think I’ll publish all of these small businesses so they can be called out!!!

  6. Funny how people/business owners want to complain about the government mask mandate but they have no problem swiping that stimulus card or using the Paycheck Protection Program and the Cares Act to support their small business!!! In case people aren’t aware small businesses could apply for these programs and received thousands of dollars from the government!!!

  7. If you are a small business owner complaining about your business suffering but are posting on social media about all the things you are buying personally I don’t feel sorry for you, I feel sorry for the employees you you laid off. Money you accepted from the government to help keep your business going not your selfish needs.
