( COVID-19) Fargo Man Coughs On People On Purpose.
I think from the time I was 4 years old, I was always quickly reminded to cover my mouth if I coughed or sneezed. That's something that should have been ingrained in all of us. Now so more than ever it seems, precautions are set up to try and defuse any unwanted germs flying around. I think William Shakespeare said it first - "To wear a mask OR not to wear a mask, that is the question"
The way things are now, with the virus still spreading havoc, most people are aware of the 'wearing a mask protocol'. Just recently Valley News Live reported that Fargo Mayor Dr. Tim Mahoney issued a Mask Mandate - "Every person shall, within the city of Fargo, wear a face covering over the mouth and nose in all indoor environments where they are exposed to non-household members and where social distancing of 6 feet or more cannot be assured."
Obviously, with the way things have escalated, tensions are high as well. An incident that occurred yesterday afternoon in Fargo is being investigated. Valley News Live reported that Young Blood Coffee downtown had to call the police after a man came into their store, without a mask on, and made it clear that he tested positive for the virus - when asked to leave since he was in violation of their policy, he began to cough in the faces of customers. Valley News Live tracked down the suspect, and he denies all the complaints against him - he claims he was treated rudely by the people inside the coffee shop and that all of the allegations have been blown out of proportion. Police have responded by saying that they talked to the accused hacker and that their report will be forwarded to the city attorney for consideration.
