August is Mask Month

August is Mask Month. In order to keep businesses, churches, and schools open, all of us in Provo need to come together and do more to reduce the rates of infection. We have a long tradition of strong community values and acting in concert to protect the most vulnerable among us. Now is the time to honor and emulate that tradition.


Appropriate social distancing, frequent hand washing, and wearing a mask in public are simple ways to make our community safer. Let's each commit to do our part to minimize risk for others by embracing these vital guidelines.


Whatever your why, we can all work together for a safe Provo.

I'm with the Mayor on this mask--muzzle issue. Shame on the city council. You have embarrassed this once decent city. LET FREEDOM RING !!!!!!!!!. The government is not to be trusted, it its staffed by many self-serving unscrupulous, public trough-feeding tyrants. If they have honest intentions let them champion transparency. - But sadly many of the 'publi' employees DO NOT HAVE decent motives .... It is Injustice from the city level up to the Federal / Global level. Wake up people!!!!!!! its Liberty versus Tyranny. Or "The War In Heaven On Played Out On Earth" if you're Mormon. Either way, most of us want freedom .

The primary purpose of government, according to the Founding Fathers (and I'm sure the Founding Mothers felt the same), is to protect our God-given liberties as listed in the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights. The only thing "novel" about the latest coronavirus, COVID-19, has been the response. The death rate is lower than previous influenza seasons, even taking into account the obvious counting of deaths not related to COVID-19. Mandating masks, closing businesses, and prohibiting gatherings has been novel and unprecedented. This draconian response is unwarranted and unconstitutional.

Great campaign! I love the call to community action. We can make a difference for those whose health is at greatest risk if we work together.

"Let's each commit to do our part to minimize risk for others". We should have school 5 days a week to help minimize our kids risk of mental illness, suicide, child abuse, and other problems. We should also minimize the risk to motorists by arresting rioters from blocking cars in the street. I still haven't heard why "we" didn't minimize that risk.
