Tennessee Debating Bill to Prevent Businesses from Banning Non-Mask-Wearing Customers

The Tennessee state legislature is mulling a bill that would ban companies from turning away customers who are not wearing medical masks.

Stores from coast to coast have been regularly requiring customers to wear masks to enter their premises during this so-called “pandemic.” And some companies have not only banned non-mask-wearing customers, but have even outright harassed them and had them arrested for disturbing the peace, all because they weren’t wearing a mask.

But now Tennessee lawmakers are looking into banning businesses from forcing customers to wear masks.

A group of Tennessee lawmakers have introduced the Medical Non-Discrimination Business and Consumer Act (SB 0320/ HB 0794) to ensure that businesses are not enforcing what government is clearly incapable of doing. It is also designed to place anti-discrimination and disability laws vis-à-vis mask-wearing in line with every other practice of business regulation that prevents even private businesses from wholesale discrimination, invasion of medical privacy, and violation of the ADA.

Specifically, this bill would prohibit a person from denying an individual the full and equal enjoyment of goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of a place of public accommodation, resort, or amusement on the grounds of the wearing or use of a medical device, or whether the individual has received medical treatment, such as a vaccine.

Horowitz notes that the bill would put non-masking in the same categories against which businesses may not discriminate per federal ADA regulations.

Let’s hope Tennessee does, indeed, get this law enacted and that many other states join the Volunteer State in the effort.
