WISCONSIN DELLS -- A popular waterpark in Wisconsin Dells is now without a general manager.
According to WLUK, Mark Whitfield was fired from his position at Noah's Ark after criticizing a potential mask mandate.
In an email to local officials, he described COVID-19 as the "Phantom China Virus."
Whitfield went on to say he had religious issues with a mandate, calling masks "the mark of the beast."
In a statement, the company that owns Noah's Ark said that they will always comply with local, state and federal guidelines.
