Russ Mayhew: Confused by face mask order

Published: 5/25/2020 6:00:07 PM

The Northampton Board of Health order states: “All persons shall wear a mask or face covering at all times while in the following public places ...,” and “Nothing in this order shall be construed to reduce or eliminate the requirement of maintaining safe distancing.”

So we have to wear a mask if we can’t maintain social distancing, but wearing a mask does not eliminate the requirement to maintain social distancing? Say what?
