Small business owners consider relaxing mask rules in stores

Small business owners consider relaxing mask rules in stores

”I think it’s an exciting step,” said Robert Owen, owner of Mantique. The temperature around wearing masks is changing since the CDC issued new guidance this week. The agency said fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, or local rules, including local business and workplace guidance. Owen believes the CDC’s mask guidance is a positive step. Though he says the mask sign will remain on his shop’s front door, for now.

Many of the guests were moving around with and without masks in public. ”It’s comfortable, you know. It’s quiet,” Mitul Lakha said.

”Everyone is keeping their space and it’s respectful. It’s quiet, nice and the weather is beautiful,” Lakha explained. People were out and about in the busy Bishop Arts retail district on Friday. Many visitors were shopping, dining, and strolling the streets.

“I have mixed feelings about it,” said owner Sherry Andrus. The boutique owner said she will be polling her neighbors and getting input from clients about how to move forward. Around the corner at Epiphany Boutique, its team is also discussing the mask guidance.

RELATED: Here’s what the new CDC mask guidance means for businesses, employees and customers ”I don’t know who’s been vaccinated and who hasn’t. So, it’s going to be kind of hard as far as that goes, as a store owner. I’m pretty much going to leave it up to the customer whatever they feel comfortable doing,” Owen explained.
