PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (KABC) -- A woman in Palm Springs was captured on video calling 911 after she was not allowed into a pet store for her refusal to wear a mask.

Video shows the employee of the store blocking the woman from entering because she didn't want to wear a mask.

"I won't wear a mask because I can't," the woman says after the employee tells her he could provide her "reasonable accommodation."

The women threatened to dial 911 and then calls.

"It's not actually a law. It's based off a state of emergency that we are no longer in," the woman is heard telling the dispatcher.

The dispatcher responds by informing her that a mask ordinance is in effect.

"It's currently a municipal code that is in effect," the dispatcher said.
