Legislators Introduce 'Mask Mandate' Bill in MN House

A group of legislators in the Minnesota House introduced a bill that would mandate the wearing of masks, or face coverings, in public public places. HF604 was introduced on Monday by Rep Sydney Jordan of Minneapolis and has 12 co-authors.Β 

The bill would require all Minnesotans over the age five to wear a face covering when they are:

1. indoors at a business or public setting

2. waiting outdoors to enter and indoor business or indoor public setting;

3. riding on public transportation, in a school transportation vehicle, in a ride-sharing vehicle, or in a vehicle being used for a business purpose;

4. outdoors when it is not possible to maintain social distancing from others who are not members of the individual's household, or

5. in a common area of a multi-unit dwelling

If the bill becomes law, businesses would be required to follow the guidelines and ensure workers adhere to the mandate. If they violate it, they could be sued by the government and fined up to $25,000. Business owners also could serve up 90 days in jail. Individual violators over the age 14 would be guilty of a petty misdemeanor and fined $100.

HF604 mirrors Governor Tim Walz' horrendous executive order that mandates mask wearing. The bill currently has no companion bill in the Minnesota Senate.Β 

Action 4 Liberty stands solidly against Governor Walz' illegal and unconstitutional orders and HF604 which seeks to make Walz' orders permanent. This anti-liberty legislation needs to be killed and Governor Walz' Emergency Powers MUST be terminated.

    Do not allow masks for all. It does far more harm than it prevents. There is actual work that needs to be done in St Paul, not this virtue signaling. Crime is out of control, for starts. Earn your pay and don’t kowtow to the foolish Governor.

    Voting gov. walz out is only part of it. We need to stand up demand our rights and take them back without his consent! This isn’t going to happen if minnesotans keep wearing their masks. Wearing your mask only makes you an accomplice to governor walz’s illegal executive over-reach regarding this mask mandate! Remember, this illness has a 99% recovery rate. Don’t be complicit!

    Notice how the Gestapo has never defined what a “mask” or “face covering” is. If they truly worked, then there would be specific guidelines regarding their design and usage. The CDC wouldn’t use a bandana over their mouth while working with Smallpox, would they? The only way to respond to this ridiculousness is to tell the Govt to eff off and vote these idiots out.

    This is a ridiculous law. Let each person decide for themselves what to do with this fake pandemic. If masks worked so well, then why do the numbers not stop. Stop the mask
    Madness. Stop the governor’s emergency power. Refuse to deal until the ridiculous abuse is over. Make a stand.

    While the state is beginning to open up, many of those who can’t wear masks are still effectively in lockdown. They can’t fly or enter certain businesses and, for many people, go back to work. To add the force of law to a mandate that is already oppressing many vulnerable Minnesotan’s would have debilitating consequences.
