I am writing this to publicly request all businesses in Weaverville take the customer mask requirement seriously for the sake of our public health and teetering economy.

It serves no purpose to post the obligatory health signage if you allow customers in your store unmasked. Please put the effort into respectfully stopping your unmasked customers at your front doors. Some customers may be belligerent, but they’ll be back because they need supplies.

I was motivated to write this letter because I realized that there were only three of us masked at the grocery store this morning and nine customers were not. This is not the way our county is going to stop the spread of COVID-19. Please do the responsible thing for all your customers and the community that supports your business.

It's not political, it’s simply the right thing to do. Thank you.
