A new survey been launched in the lead up to the Palmer City Council’s special meeting on Nov. 18 where it will vote on whether to issue a citywide mask mandate – both indoors and outside.
The online survey is aimed at ascertaining the economic impact of a mask mandate. It asks one simple question: “Are you more or less likely to shop in Palmer if there is a mask mandate?”
The proposed mandate states in part: “All individuals must wear masks or face coverings over their noses and mouths when they are indoors in public settings or communal spaces outside the home, or outdoors when at a gathering or, when not at a gathering, when 6 feet of physical distancing from non-household members, (or small chosen close group) cannot be maintained.”
