Wearing face masks suggested, not mandated in Sequatchie

On July 3, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed Executive Order 54 to grant county mayors in 89 counties the authority to issue local mask requirements in the event of a significant rise in COVID-19 cases. Sequatchie County has no plans to mandate a mask requirement, announced County Executive Keith Cartwright.

“Though I have been given the authority by the Governor to mandate the masks, I want to leave this up to families and households,” Executive Cartwright said July 10.

    What about restaurants not wearing masks.

    Undocumented workers cooking your food and serving your food with no mask on.

    Keith, you came to my house and asked me to vote for you and I told you I’m a volunterist so I don’t vote, but I’d vote for you. Thank you for being a critical thinker and honest public servant who abides by the US constitution, this country needs more folks like you.
