#3--Odell Declares Putnam Won’t Enforce ‘Unrealistic’ Mask Mandate
December 14, 2021 Rick Pezzullo
Gov. Kathy Hochul’s statewide mandate that individuals 12 years and older wear masks or show proof of vaccination to enter all public spaces went into effect Monday, but Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell declared Putnam will not be enforcing what she called an “unrealistic” edict.
Odell, a Republican, said neither the Putnam County Health Department nor law enforcement officials will step in to admonish anyone who doesn’t follow the Democratic governor’s mandate.
“Our Main Street businesses have followed all the rules, from recommendations and guidelines to shutdowns throughout this pandemic in order to keep the public and their customers safe and healthy,” Odell said. “Now, in the midst of the holiday season, business owners are facing numerous operating issues including supply chain and hiring difficulties. We cannot expect them to implement this unrealistic order.” MORE AT https://www.theexaminernews.com/odell-declares-putnam-wont-enforce-unrealistic-mask-mandate/
