Unmask Westford Kids!
The Westford Board of Health Has Gone Too Far!
Whereas, on September 24, 2021 the five elected members of the Westford Board of Health unanimously voted on an overly restrictive and authoritarian mask mandate to be effective 12:01 am Friday, October 1, 2021.
Whereas, the following regulation excerpts are exceptionally unreasonable and tyrannical:
- “Face coverings that cover the nose and face are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, aged two years and above in all indoor public spaces, houses of worship, or private spaces open to the public.” Note: Exemptions are available for those unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition or disability but these exemptions are notoriously difficult to obtain.
- “Fitness Center/Health Club workers, customers, and visitors are required to wear face coverings during fitness activity, including strenuous activity and group activity.”
- “All entry doors of businesses open to the public must post notice advising customers that face coverings must be worn inside the establishment. Establishment staff must supervise and enforce this requirement. If a customer refuses to wear a face covering for non-medical reasons, a business may decline entry to the individual.”
- “The Westford Board of Health and authorized agents pursuant to MGL chapter 111, §30, are authorized to enforce this regulation and if necessary, may do so with the assistance of the Westford Police Department and other designees appointed by the Town Manager. Violations of this regulation may be punished by a civil fine of up to $300 per violation.”
Therefore, be it resolved, that masks shall only be encouraged (if the Board so desires) but not be required and that no person of any age (especially children) shall be compelled via coercion, bribery, or punishment to follow such order, even under alleged health emergencies.
