A store selling musical instruments north of Brisbane has caused outrage after erecting a sign telling people not to wear masks inside the shop.

The sign, which was hung up out the front of Guitar Exchange at Morayfield, tells visitors “no masks permitted in store”.

“Your body makes particles while healing,” it reads.

“They are not contagious.”

It says anyone who is “fragile” and believes they need to wear a mask: “do not enter”.

Queensland doesn’t have a rule requiring people to wear masks.

Guitar Exchange has been contacted for comment.

Sign sparks fury online as people vow to avoid store

The sign led to anger on Facebook with people calling the slamming the store’s staff members and calling them names.

“I will never be setting foot into your store again,” one man wrote.

One woman wrote in a review she would “absolutely” recommend the store to anyone looking to catch Covid.

“By ignoring experts and not allowing masks in their store, they are making sure to put everyone inside at a greater risk,” she wrote.

Others jokingly questioned whether bands such as TISM and Slipknot, whose members famously wear masks, might not be allowed in the shop.
