California mayor of Nevada City, Reinette Senum, turned to Facebook to post her thoughts on the usage of masks in daily life. She states that “THERE IS NO LAW THAT STATES YOU MUST WEAR A MASK” and advises that the police can not cite or take action against you if you are not wearing one. Nevada City’s police chief, Chad Ellis, responded shortly thereafter. He confirmed that they can not cite for not wearing a mask, but he urges “the community and visitors continue to social distance and to wear masks pursuant to the governor’s recommendation.” Vice Mayor Erin Minett also responded, clarifying that the Mayor’s post was Senum’s own personal opinion and not the views of Nevada City.
