Talbot leaders weigh limited group size, mask mandates

Talbot County government employees, all wearing masks in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, sit in on a recent county council meeting at the courthouse in Easton.

EASTON — The Talbot County Council, in response to the county’s ongoing surge in coronavirus infections, will draft an executive order that could subject citizens to fines if they fail to wear a face covering in public or refrain from gathering in large groups.

There is no excuse for the Talbot County Council to become totalitarian. If they do, perhaps they would be kind enough to cite their authority. I don't recall giving up my Constitutional rights when I moved to Talbot County in 1987. Adults can weigh the degree of risk they're willing to take for themselves and their families. I don't need to be saved from myself by well-meaning but ignorant politicians.
