As this virus continues to grow in numbers, you need to mandate masks for Port Orange for our SAFETY. Cities around Port Orange have to wear masks. Your 30 day idea isn't going to work. Make a stronger commitment to mask wearing for our safety. Do it now.

Mask wearing
I am sorry but I don't know how you are getting this message to the public. I wear a mask when I go out but at the stores only about 10% of the customers wear masks. This is becoming more dangerous every day and I don't think Port Orange has helped the citizens at all during this time. There needs to be a stronger try to keep us safe.
