Do YOU wear a mask in public ⁉️ Last week, the Twitter video of the week was a St Lucie County Commission on masks, in which a gentleman stood at the podium and proclaimed, “I will not be muzzled like a mad dog,” while looking a lot like a mad dog. Based on a few folks we’ve spoken to recently, there are quite a few in Rockaway who agree. We don’t. 😷 People should wear cloth face coverings in public settings when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. 😷 Cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. 😷 Cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings. Do we want to regress? Or do we want to keep baby-stepping our way to a better tomorrow? We vote for masks, and to keep moving forward. Don’t let the defiance toward a small inconvenience be the starting point of a second wave that sets us back. ✍️: @sketchingtom
