Wear a mask when you’re out
To the Editor,
It has become abundantly clear that the most effective, positive, immediate efforts the general public can make to help stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus are: wash your hands, respect social distancing outside of your household “bubble” and … wear a mask. Yet we still see so many people out and about in circumstances that don’t easily permit a six-foot perimeter, not wearing a mask. What part of this do people not get? Perhaps the “recommendation” to wear a mask is not strong enough. Seat belts are not a recommendation, nor are speed limits or “no smoking” regulations.
Everyone has seen a “no shirt, no shoes ... no service” sign. Perhaps the directive needs to be better understood by all. “Everyone on these premises must wear a mask. This includes customers and staff.” Period!
