Gov. Andy Beshear ordered all Kentuckians to wear a mask when in public places. As expected, the move is controversial. He exempted those with certain health conditions. But for the rest of us that go to grocery stores, restaurants, or retail outlet, we won’t be allowed in without a mask. If the store or restaurant doesn’t enforce this, then they face penalties, including the possibility of being shut down. If you’re in outside public spaces where others are present, you’ll also need to wear a mask. I’ve had several pastors ask if it’s constitutional to force churchgoers to wear a mask during Sunday services. Based on earlier court rulings, the answer is no. In either case, expect a court challenge to the governor’s mandatory mask order.
