Mayor: Mask mandate not constitutional

With COVID-19 cases continuing in the area, Lebanon Mayor Jared Carr said he doesn’t think it would be constitutional for the City to require people to wear masks. At Monday night’s City Council meeting, Carr made the comments after Councilman Bob Garner said he thought the city should consider cancelling the upcoming gospel music Get Together at Cowan Civic Center because of COVID-19. Carr said residents needed to exercise personal responsibility in deciding to wear masks or attend events. For more on this story see Wednesday's LCR.
