This paper analyzed Tweets that were provided as responses to Governor Pritzker’s indoor mask mandate that came into effect on August 30, 2021.  Illinoisans responded to the mandate the most, 67%.  The low vaccination rates for rural counties and the reluctance of rural businesses to enforce the mandate were the Tweets associated with the “rural” adjective.  Overall, the energy level of the responses was low and emojis contained either a face with a mask symbol or a warning sign.
