Wearing a mask is not that hard

Dear Editor, I'm tired of hearing people rebel about wearing a mask in public places. I have even seen people refuse free ones when entering a large store.

Dear Editor,

I'm tired of hearing people rebel about wearing a mask in public places. I have even seen people refuse free ones when entering a large store. When I see these people, I have to ask myself, do they have a medical condition that means they cannot wear a mask or are they really that selfish?

I must admit that either we have a lot of people with medical reasons or a lot of selfish people. It's really such an easy thing to do to show people that you care enough to not want to get others sick.

You might think, 'Oh, but I'm not sick.' But how do you really know if you're an asymptomatic carrier or not, and why take the chance? If you're against being told to wear one, just make it your choice to do it anyway. It's such an easy way to show people that you're not selfish and that you care about other people's wellbeing. Hopefully, we won't need to wear them for too long.

I'm not talking about when you're out walking, but while in stores, on buses, in doctor's offices, and places like that. For now, just show people that you care and wear a mask.
