Face Covering Debate: It is an Executive Order Not a Law

Virginia Beach Law Group

Can the government legally enforce you to wear a mask? It is an executive order not a law. That’s right, it is not a law to wear a mask, it is an executive order and does not have the full weight of law.

A mask mandate via a governor executive order is NOT a law and is therefore not legally enforceable.

If you get tangled up with an over-eager law enforcement official about masking (or not), give us a call.

YES! We can help with that.
