Yes. It’s real. LawMaker works.
In the final four days of the 2020 Kansas City LawMaker Challenge, Joel Awaken’s pandemic-related policy mandating the wearing of masks indoors was near the top of our leaderboard. A simple but popular policy, it read: “When indoors in public, patrons and staff are required to wear masks in stores deemed essential.” Joel’s policy went on to win the KC Challenge days later.
On June 26, 2020, Mayor Lucas amended his city’s emergency order to announce that people will now be required to wear masks while indoors at any “place of public accommodation,” including, but not limited to grocery and retail stores, special events, and public transit.
