Mayor Statement Regarding Mask Requirement:
On July 7, 2020, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee extended and clarified his Safe Start proclamation until August 6, 2020. Under these stricter guidelines, “individuals are prohibited from entering a place of business without wearing a face covering,” and businesses may not conduct in-person business with a customer unless he/she is wearing a face covering. There are, of course, health exceptions, but the standard set forth by Governor Inslee’s proclamation is essentially, No Mask, No Service.
As a fellow resident and patron of our many wonderful small businesses in and around Wilbur, Mayor Erica Hearrean is aware of the burden this rule places on merchants. It is not easy to enforce a rule that you, as an owner, had no hand in making. It can also be difficult to confront customers who are also your friends and neighbors and demand that they conform to the Governor’s mask requirement.
It is for those very reasons that Mayor Hearrean asks Wilbur residents for their patience and understanding when patronizing local businesses. She encourages everyone who is able, to wear a mask without a fuss and to be supportive of local merchants’ efforts. These new guidelines are not their choice, but they do run the risk of being fined for non-compliance.
We all love our small community and want to keep it thriving and strong both through these challenging times and well beyond. Help our businesses stay open, stay busy and stay healthy – please wear a mask when you go inside. With a supportive attitude we can all get back to “normal” sooner!
Wilbur Mayor Erica Hearrean, July 13, 2020
Mayor Hearrean encourages anyone needing assistance due to the COVID pandemic to please reach out to a friend, a neighbor, a church, or to her directly. It is very important for us to do what Wilbur does best- take care of each other! This is a very difficult and unprecedented time, but we are a strong and supportive community. Let’s adapt and overcome!
“One of Wilbur’s greatest strengths is that we are a small compassionate community and that we care deeply about our neighbors! We will come together in these trying times and we will thrive once this crisis is over!” Stay Healthy, Stay Safe and Stay Home!
