FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): If you want to shop in Fort Wayne, but only at places that require customers to wear face coverings due to the spread of COVID-19, a new Facebook group is pointing out such businesses.

It’s called “Mask Up Fort Wayne!”, and was started by a pair of local teachers, according to the Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly, to promote local establishments that go beyond the state’s requirements for businesses to be up and running during the pandemic.

More than 350 people have joined the group, which is open to anyone with a Facebook account, since it launched on July 1st. You can find it here.


  1. When can the public expect to see a posting of Fort Wayne businesses that don’t require face masks for their patrons?

  2. Since I’m not of Facebook, I would like to know what school these teachers teach at so that I can avoid sending my kids there.

    I want my kids to learn personal responsibility and to think for themselves. Not be in a heard of sheep, participating in the mob mentality by praising people and businesses for following suit….eventually turns into Shaming others that do not buy into their way of thinking (as in some Cities around the Country).

    If wearing a mask was so important, why now? Why not 4 months ago when we were attempting to “flatten the curve”?

    Speaking of NOW: Death rates and hospitalizations are down….Curve is flattened….take your mask and %#&+x…..
