How to Enforce a Mask Mandate In Your Theater, Museum, Library or Store

We thought we’d be done with COVID by now. Yet, here we are.

I was supposed to be boarding a plane tomorrow to deliver the opening keynote for a large event in D.C. It’s now virtual. A workshop I’m facilitating in Tulsa in a few weeks is now online. My son’s school reinstated mask mandates this week. 

Speaking of masks, I’m doing a lot of digital de-escalation training for clients in museums, libraries, theaters, and medical offices. The issue? Enforcing mask requirements.

This morning I recorded a short training on how to handle the most challenging mask questions. Like, “Why do you have a mask requirement?” and “What do you do when customers politicize masks?”

If you’re struggling with face-covering issues with customers, you’re not alone. Watch my short training (below) for answers to your top questions.
