You may recall last week when Bell county judge David Blackburn issued a directive that ordered all businesses to require the use of face coverings by employees' customers, contractors, and vendors where physical distancing isn’t possible.

KWTX reports Bell County Commissioners voted Monday to amend that directive, choosing to instead "strongly encourage" businesses to mandate customers employees contractors and vendors wear a facemask instead of forcing them to do it.

Personally, I don’t see what the problem people have with wearing face masks.

It saves lives!

It prevents you from inhaling the bad things and most importantly prevents you from exhaling to others at risk.


The longer this disease stays around the more we will receive directives to start wearing masks or worse, another shutdown.

Do you part while you are out and make sure you wear your masks and practice social distancing!

Currently, The Bell County Health District's Website reports Bell County has had over 1200 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 13 people dying from the virus.
