Geno’s in Parchment Getting Heat for Anti-Mask Sign
Geno's Golden Pizza & Pub in Parchment, Michigan is getting blow back from customers after they posted a sign on their front door that infers a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy toward wearing masks when inside. The sign says, quote:
Those in our lovely government have ordered that all persons entering indoor facilities to wear a mask. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, you are exempt from this order. Due to HIPPAA (sic) and the 4th Amendment we cannot legally ask you about yourmedical condition. Therefore, if we see you without a mask, we will assume you have a medical condition and we will welcome you inside to support our business!
A photon of the sign was shared on the We Are Parchment Facebook page by a resident who said, "This is very disappointing. Can someone from Geno's pkease address this? I am not comfortable supporting a business (which I have been supporting for the 6 years I have lived in Parchment) that is not supportive of our Governor's efforts to save lives. Honestly, I would love an explanation."
The 106 comments that follow this photo are a mix of support and dismay for Geno's with some residents stating that the restaurant has lost customers for life, and others saying, in effect, "if you don't like it, don't go there."
