Be safe, be smart and wear a mask to protect others

Let me reiterate for those people who do not understand: you wear masks to protect others. Pretend for one minute that you actually care whether you make someone sick and then they die.

The “stay home if you feel sick” mantra doesn’t work for this virus because some people who have it don’t feel sick but they can still make other people sick. And those other people can get sick, suffer and die.

Why are the simple instructions to wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands so difficult? This is the same instructions as during the 1919 pandemic which should tell you something, viruses are complex and apparently smarter than us.

Be safe. Stay well.
