Nearly a dozen new signs encouraging mask use in Woodstock Village were vandalized with spray paint.

Municipal Manager William Kerbin said the vandalism occurred last weekend, and that police are investigating.

Nearly 30 metal fabricated signs were placed throughout the Village and at key entry points. However, at least 10 signs were defaced with blue spray painted messages and symbols. One of the messages read, “No Way,” while another depicted the communist hammer and sickle.

“Pretty bad stuff,” Kerbin said.

On Monday, municipal workers used a chemical solvent to remove the graffiti, he said.
