A man and two children were escorted out of a Walmart in Turlock, California, by police on June 20 for not wearing face masks as a precaution against COVID-19, reports said .
Footage shot by an observer shows the man leaving the store with two young girls, trailed by police. “That’s a good use of ****ing tax dollars,” he says into his cellphone.
A policeman explained the situation in another video taken by the observer, saying: “If they refuse to leave the store, then they would be considered trespassing.”
The California Department of Health issued guidelines for citizens on June 18, writing masks must be worn “in any room or enclosed area where other people are present when unable to physically distance.” Credit: Bobbie Carne via Storyful
