mask mandate opposition

Jim Montgomery voices his opposition to the mask mandate during Monday’s meeting.

GOSHEN — Local health officials are expressing concern about the dangers of misinformation during the pandemic.

Earlier this week, a number of residents spoke up at an Elkhart County Board of Commissioners meeting to demand an end to a mask mandate. They questioned the effectiveness of masks in preventing the spread of the coronavirus or claimed masks actually pose a danger, in addition to casting the mandate in the same light as extreme social controls like China’s one-child policy.
