CPD: Mask mandate

By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

With new mandates concerning masks in public we would like to encourage those who have issue to take advantage of many businesses who have been offering curbside and delivery service for some time, many of which have recently started such practices this year to help accommodate needs through 2020.

We would also like to state employees and business owners are not responsible for the current mask mandate handed down by Frankfort, and may themselves not agree with it. However they have chosen to abide by it, until the matter is ultimately decided in a higher court like so many other executive orders and mandates have already been in 2020.

During this time we will state it is a private businesses right to refuse a party's service and ask said party to leave property and we again would remind citizens of Columbia and Adair to take advantage of delivery and curbside pickup if you take issue with wearing masks like so many of us do.

We have an opportunity as a community to show what examples we can be to others throughout this time, 2020 has been a year like no other in recent memory, now is not the time to actively seek more strife and more division.
