Despite the surge of new cases of Covid-19 in the state with 3,257 new cases on Thursday, a Missouri taxi company stated it will not pick up passengers who are vaccinated against Covid-19 or wear masks, The Hill reports.
Charlie Bullington, the owner of the transportation service, underlined that no masks are allowed in his vehicles and pointed he also doesn’t want people who have received Covid-19 jab because the company is against the vaccines.
More than one person that were denied service by Yo Transportation have complained on Yelp and Google that on top of that, they were ‘harassed’ with multiple anti-masking messages from the company
Bullington runs his company Yo Transportation for more than 16 years, offering taxi services in Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, Montgomery, St. Charles, St. Louis and Warren Counties.
But, despite Bullington’s firm anti-mask anti-vaccine stand and controversial client policies, about 42 percent of Missouri population is fully vaccinated with more than 358,000 other that have registered for the chance to win $10,000 in Missouri lottery designed to entice vaccination that launches in a week.
There are five lottery drawings planned will take place every other Friday until Oct. 8.
Meanwhile, Missouri Governor Mike Parson is tripling the number of mutual aid ambulances for long-haul patients transfers to help reduce COVID caseloads at hospitals that need and is begging Missourians to vaccinate as the best way to prevent serious illness from Covid-19.
