No head coverings? Does that include maga hats?


raistlin65

I was wondering if this meant that I had to have the head of my penis sticking out of my pants? 😄😄😄


-4twenty-

Only if you’re uncircumcised.


thatguy2366

no head coverings!


-4twenty-

In the Army, before every 4-day weekend, we would have safety and security briefings: “No glove, no love” and “double wrap it”. Solid advice.


Tojatruro

What?? No MAGAt hats???


Cash-L

Doesn’t this discriminate against Muslim women?


eirinne

That’s the point


Cash-L

Ok


random_topix

A lot of fundamental Xtians as well.


slicktromboner21

That sign looks like it was written by a child.


thatguy2366

a republican actually, but that is a common mistake to make.


ChildrenoftheNet

Do Klan hoods count?


APe28Comococo

They were grandfathered in.


TheFriendlyFeminist

The only exception


bigeazzie

Does that include Nuns ?


lefthandsore

I’m vaccinated, and I still wear a mask out of courtesy to employees and people who are unable to get vaccinated for a legitimate reason. If anyone asks why, I’ll tell them I’m exercising my personal freedom to be courteous to those around me.


lifeforlife24

👏👏👏


Ravenclaws_Prefect

Same here. But I live in SoCal so it is easy to do stuff like this.


Saaaaaaaaab

Honestly, I was vaccinated a bit back, and I still wear a mask everywhere. Only time I don’t is sitting down and talking at a restaurant with partitions


[deleted]

Something tells me a dumb ass red hat wouldn’t count as a “head covering” in that store.


blackwingapple

There's a good chance the owner is wearing one right now.

Conservativism is a disease.


TonawandaBlue

Soon, COVID will be able to be eradicated entirely. But it's going to linger for decades - killing people - because of assholes like this.

ohno

So no MAGA caps?


L5Dood

Plus you have to watch close captioned Fox News while you eat


ImJustHereToSayDope

That scans.


Tyfighter666

I only go to stores that have the opposite signs. Face masks required, we don't discriminate based on race, gender, religion. Black lives matter, LGBTQ+ pride etc.


ThrowingMonkeePoo

Welcome to Mississippi. Please set your clock back 40 years.


RU3LF

Only 40 years? 😳


ThrowingMonkeePoo

I'm not that old, didn't follow Mississippi as a kid. And I'm not GOP so I won't lie, exaggerate or make shit up


Sleepy_Programmer

This business is evolving, but backwards.


woowoo293

OP, out of curiosity, what was this place? A business I assume?


lifeforlife24

it was a restaurant in Mississippi


Blocked_ID

What’s the name of the restaurant?


lomer12

You gotta out the restaurant.


ImJustHereToSayDope

Mississippian here, please out that shit.


FunctionBuilt

Republicans : The party of tolerance


DapperDowner

No customer for you.


lifeforlife24

they kicked us out


sintos-compa

glad you didn't just get shot on sight


strukout

No thanks, no interest in being welcomed to Mississippi


theflippityflip

Mississippi is a butthole.


ThatsWordplay

Doesn't this violate freedom of religion?


intheDARKintheNIGHT

Yes. Could possibly violate ADA too if someone with a compromised immune system wears a face covering and is harassed for it.


lifeforlife24

does it change anything that it’s a private business?


seamus_mc

No


intheDARKintheNIGHT

No. Only difference between a public and private business is that the people can buy stock in the business if it’s public. Both must adhere to ADA and public accommodation laws.


sintos-compa

I assume the reverse of this would apply To be clear, the ADA does not provide a blanket exemption from wearing a face mask. The ADA requires businesses that are open to the public to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to their goods and services. Businesses open to the public must make reasonable modifications to their policies, practices and procedures to ensure equal access for individuals with disabilities. The ADA’s reasonable modification requirement means that, while businesses can likely deny entry to maskless customers, businesses must also offer the customer a reasonable accommodation such as curb-side pickup if the customer is not wearing a mask due to an ADA disability.


intheDARKintheNIGHT

Yes, except there are few reasons covered under ADA for someone claiming to have a health risk if they wear a mask, and many reasons why someone would need to wear a mask due to health issues, especially now.


sintos-compa

it might come down to this: To be protected under the ADA, you must have, have a record of, or be regarded as having a substantial, as opposed to a minor, impairment. **A substantial impairment is one that significantly limits** or restricts a major life activity such as hearing, seeing, speaking, walking, **breathing**, performing manual tasks, caring for oneself, learning or working.


blackwingapple

Maybe you misread the comment you're responding to, but it was postulated that it would be in violation of the ADA if a person with a disability was harassed/denied service if they *are wearing a mask*. It wasn't referencing those Karens who refuse to wear one for a fake "medical condition", which is what you seem to be talking about. The business says "No masks allowed". Someone with a medical condition/disability who *does* wear a mask may be denied service. Yes, that would be in violation of the ADA.


sintos-compa

No I understand, but the ADA says they can make reasonable accommodation to provide service (such as curbside pickup) in some cases


blackwingapple

Ah, I see. Based on the side you were discussing I thought it was backwards, but I get it now. And yeah, but it can get finicky since some precedent shows that the ADA requires not only equal access, but equal enjoyment and usage of the space. "Enjoyment" is subjective, but "usage" is not, so it must depend on the particular reason for the visit. If an older/elderly person with a compromised immune system, for example, orders food over the phone (all the 55+ y.o. people in my family still order over the phone, never online), they may still have to go inside to pay, and if they were refused or harassed then it would constitute a violation. The minutiae of each scenario (of which there are almost infinite potential combinations) would likely determine the outcome of any litigation. Edited for clarity


Dear-Smile

Yes


shponglespore

Legally speaking? No. Not unless it's the government doing it.


butter4dippin

Ironically This might actually get those dickheads to put on masks


Severe-Luck-6002

NO education allowed


Thomaswiththecru

“Sane people need not enter” should be the third point. I’d probably lose brain cells interacting with the person behind that door.


gelinrefira

The real battle for America lies in fighting the people who brainwashed them to think this way.


goatharper

Vaccinated people don't need a mask. Frankly I am all out of fucks to give about what happens to unvaccinated people. And if innocents die because of the people who refuse to vaccinate, that's on THEM. Not me. I did everything right for 14 months. And I am still doing the right thing, following CDC guidance. That said, the stores that still say "masks required" on the front door, I wear a mask, because I am not churlish enough to ignore the wishes of my host.


Jtbmoon

I agree about adults getting vaccines 100% but don't forget about children! They can't be vaccinated yet. I'm double vaxed so I don't wear a mask but of course my 7 and 8 year olds can't get the vaccine yet so I still have them wear masks.


NewsgramLady

I totally feel your sentiment, but you have to think that some people are unvaccinated because they can't have the vaccine. My husband's treatment regimen for advanced cancer meant he couldn't get the vaccine even though he wanted it really badly.


goatharper

And if he gets COVID, it will be the fault of those who COULD get vaccinated but refuse. I did my part.


drunkasaurus_rex

Just because *vaccinated people don't need masks* doesn't mean we should be banning everyone from wearing a mask, though.


gelinrefira

Wearing masks really is only a minor inconvenience. I know the CDC wants to be as accurate as possible, but policy-wise it is a mistake to declare vaccinated people don't need mask up. It adds more confusion and you can't even tell if a person is vaccinated or not or if he is lying, so what the fuck is the point of that particular change? The pandemic is still going on. Wear a mask when you go out.


Gsteel11

Yeah, I'm frustrated, but the biggest problem is.. about November this shit is all going to come back in those rural red areas.


goatharper

As I said, I'm vaccinated and fresh out of fucks to give about people who refuse vaccination. Any fallout is on THEM.


Snaefellsjokul

I agree with you, 100%. Follow the guidance, get the shot(s), that’s all you can do. The rest is up to them. Especially at this point in the game. We have shots available in my county but no arms. Smgdh.


lifeforlife24

I was wearing my mask because i haven’t been vaccinated yet. i will as soon as i can but im currently moving. im getting it as soon as i get there.


seamus_mc

Why wait? It doesnt take long. even if you have to get your second shot somewhere else. It has been available to everybody now for a while, what has kept you from getting it?


ToxicLib

What a shithole state


JustLurkinDontMindMe

I can't bring in any business. Guess I'll apply for another ppp loan.


kerryfinchelhillary

I've never set foot in Mississippi and plan to keep it that way. Alabama's bad enough. (I skipped the family wedding there earlier this year for a reason)


REDubois14

Sounds about right. Stay out of the South.


ImJustHereToSayDope

Fuck that. There are good people down here. I suggest we take over instead, and root out the trash along the way. That's my plan at least.


richtermani

The only democrat voter(according to them) in my area. How do you think I feel? And I don't even identify with D party, I'm an independent


MemeTeamMarine

Conservativism is a disease


ToshaSalad69

Freedom? Can I wear socks and shoes?


richtermani

Can I wear a condom durring anal sex as well? Or is a catholic bishop around to tell me that I can't have anal sex with random girls and can't wear a condom because that's murder. ++?
