As a self-described “mask vigilante” I’d like to point out that Grand County is authorized by the governor to mandate everyone wear masks while in public.
When an individual, whether tourist or local, fails to obey the order, any citizen is entitled to respectfully ask them to please don a mask.
This is not vigilantism any more than Christian Cooper’s polite request to the lady in Central Park to leash her dog as required by NYC law – recall how that turned out for the lady. Like leashing your dog in public spaces, wearing a mask in public is at worst an inconvenience; it is not oppression.
Wearing a simple mask reduces the spread and helps save lives.
Support your local mask vigilantes!
