Marine Resident Stages Protest On Masks

Andrew, a Marine resident, staged a protest on Friday afternoon on Vernon at Division St. across from the Stop-N-Go Mart in Marine, after  “the gas station gave him attitude” for not wearing a mask as posted on the doors. He said he asked the operators to show him the Governor’s executive order and they were unable to do so. He also said that they have lost his business until the mandate changes and he has heard other customers make the same comment. Andrew said passers by were supportive, honking and stopping to talk to him. Although alone this time, Andrew said if the signs are not down in a couple of days he will have another protest with more people. “The more people buy into it the worse it’s going to get”, Andrew said. He also believes children should be in school and not forced to wear masks “since they are least likely to get sick”.

    Well, if Andrew from Marine says masks are useless then I guess they are.
    Must have been a slow news day.

    We saw this guy setting up. I also saw two businesses in Marine following the mask mandate and I spoke to one small business owner who believes that wearing a mask is the right thing to do for the greater good. If we can stay on the point with science, the pandemic will come to its less damaging conclusion.

    It’s a private company. They can say you are only allowed to come in if you’re wearing a shirt and tie if they want. Get over yourself. If you don’t like it, don’t shop there. Simple as that.
