The Town of Fraser instituted mandatory mask wearing in all Fraser businesses per local ordinance 479 starting July 7th, 2020. While we are aware of the debates in the community, and indeed the nation, in regards to requiring facial coverings; as we approach fall/winter season, school season, and increasing case counts nationally, we feel that its imperative to protect our local economy.
This is a simple, proactive step we can take to keep Fraser locals at work, get our kids back to school, and keep ourselves and our neighbors healthy. Wearing a mask is not only safe – but it is necessary to avoid another shut down. When outside recreating and observing the 6-foot social distancing recommendations, we are not requiring mask wearing.
We are asking for voluntary compliance and are focused on keeping our town and county safe and healthy.
To assist businesses and customers with compliance, we will be acquiring disposable masks and distributing them to our business community.
