The owner of a Missouri cab company is refusing to pick up any passengers who wear masks or have received a COVID vaccine.
Charlie Bullington’s Yo Transportation Services issued the edict Thursday, even as the state grappled with a surge of new cases.
“We don’t allow any type of masks in our vehicles,” Bullington told KMOV4. “We are very against the vaccine and don’t allow people in our vehicle that did get the vaccine.”
Bullington told the broadcaster that he first verifies if passengers have had the vaccine and are wearing a mask before he dispatches a taxi.
Bullington, whose 16-year-old company services St, Louis and other nearby cities, said he is proud that Missouri is among the top three states with the lowest vaccination rates in the country.
“I am proud of all the Missouri people for standing against this,” he said.
