That would be a huge tactical mistake IMO, and I hope its not true

There are far more effective ways the state could be pursuing to increase mask wearing in public, which is a goal they should be pursuing. There is no need to resort to statutes or emergency orders on masks until they have done more work on increasing voluntary compliance.

VDH should be hitting every major retailer in the state with strong recommendations they require masks of their patrons (no law or order, just a strong public health recommendation). Back it up with free posters/signage/fliers and a public information campaign on FB, Twitter and websites. Make it so that the businesses who do not require masks are the outliers, and it could all be achieved voluntarily with a strong public campaign and no statutes.

Do that first, and if that fails to work, then consider why and whether a law would even fix that.
