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!
