Mask Freedom - Maine Medical Mask Exemption
Jaime Dyer 12-2-2020 Protesting Mask Freedom to Legislators
Beacon For Sovereignty has been at the forefront of the fight for Medical Mask Exemptions since Governor Janet Mills removed the safeguards in December of 2020. Legislator Billy Bob Faulkingham, of the Town of Steuben reached out to BFS the same month, for assistance getting a resolution before Town committees.
BFS set out to do just that.
BFS has faxed, called and emailed town offices across the state for since, and have found opposition by State Attorneys, threatening towns that Medical exemptions to masks are against the law.
As such, many towns have voted down the proposed resolution to restore Medical exemptions. But many have adopted it.
Many towns have simply tabled the resolution until their citizens demand it be paced on the agenda.
Following is the results of our push for Medical Mask Exemption Rights as of 04-17-2021
Towns that HAVE voted, are listed below:
Carroll Plantation Yes
South Paris Yes
Piscataquis County Yes
N Berwick No
Winter Harbor No
