Can Private Businesses Require Masks If The Gov't Doesn't

I saw the news yesterday announcing that the statewide face mask mandate in Indiana had ended. This had been previously announced, so I doubt many people were caught by surprise. But the CBS News coverage of the story highlighted the fact that while the mandatory order had expired, how individual cities, counties, and even individual businesses would handle the question of mask usage would be up to them. They cite a few examples of the different ways that businesses plan to deal with the question. But that should prompt another question in the minds of the state’s residents. If it’s not seen as a requirement by the government, can those rules be enforced in an establishment that serves the entire public?

Will you shop at or support a business that requires a mask even though the statewide mandate has been lifted? Rod will take your comments during today's show..
