ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) - A change could be coming to the Rock Hill area. City council will take a vote on the mask mandate that has been in place since July.
This vote would make Rock Hills mask mandate indefinite until council decides to repeal it. The mandate would have expired on September 7 if council had not voted to extend it until mid-October.
Now, council members are trying to keep the mandate without having to vote every 60 days. This is the second reading for this emergency ordinance, so if it passes tonight, it will be enacted.
Only four council members need to vote yes for this to pass. The same amount of council members will need to vote to repeal it as well.
Everything in the mandate still stands. The emergency ordinance requires everyone in Rock Hill to wear a mask inside buildings. This includes restaurants, shops and nail salons. People working in those places are also required to wear a mask.
Anyone without a mask will be fined up to one hundred dollars. The few exceptions like religious beliefs, medical conditions and children under 10 still stand as well.
Some people around Rock Hill are encouraging council to continue the mask requirement.
I love it. I love protecting me and others. Yes maam, protect me and everybody else," says one Rock Hill resident.

I thought the South was going to be the ones to rise up against mask mandates. I guess not
Too many yankees down here.
Update: motion passed
Mask Mandate no longer has an end
People got the gubmint they voted for.Dumbasses.
And getting worse by the day.Idiots
Just tell them you have a health issue and they cant make you do a damned thing or have to prove it due to Hipa.
Or, Carr an apple and say you were having a snack.
Are some people constantly fingering their masks for no reason and wearing them repeatedly without putting clean ones on? They should stop doing that. They should stop scratching their cracks and wash their hands, too. And maybe a diet would help.
Are some people driving alone while wearing their masks? They should put a big sign on the backs of their cars saying, “Mind your own business! I’m only going a couple of blocks and don’t want to finger this mask before going in the Post Office!”
The magic words: I have a disability.
End of conversation. Or else legal problems start.
Sometimes I do wear a mask into a store but many times I just don’t feel like it.
My disability? I’m allergic to mandates.
More controlling, criminal government on open display.
At least this "mandate" is legislative and not a governor's or mayoral edict. City councils can be voted out of office and their legislation reversed.
I’m glad I do not live around Rock Hill or any business there.
sadly, yes, I am a refugee here, too many others are opportunists who want to bring the liberal poison here that they left back there.
Rock Hill, however, is heavily infested with southern democrats in government.
You have my sympathies.
I have little doubt that Rock Hill’s stupidity will only make its way down I77 to me just outside Columbia.
Rock Hill’s just a redneck college town.
Probably more Biden bumper stickers on Winthrop’s campus than you can shake a stick at...there were for Hillary.
I left rock hill to greener pastures :)
Still in SC
and wow, I wish I was raised here. . .
