“Masks must be mandatory” text superimposed on red face mask with blue eyes peering over the top.

Masks must be mandatory: Covid-19 is damaging hearts.

Masks must be mandatory: Covid-19 is damaging kidneys.

Masks must be mandatory: Covid-19 is damaging livers.

Masks must be mandatory: Covid-19 is causing blood clots.

Masks must be mandatory: Covid-19 is causing amputations.

Masks must be mandatory: Covid-19 is causing death.

Masks must be mandatory: COVID-19 IS NOT THE FLU.*

It’s not just a matter of being considerate. If you don’t wear a mask, and you are asymptomatic, you may maim or kill someone.

You are not wearing a mask ONLY for your own benefit.

You are wearing a mask for every person you encounter, so you do not spray tiny, airborne particles, that can float through the air whether you are in close proximity to other people or in enclosed spaces, that others can breathe, ingest, or get in their eyes.

Wearing a mask shows you care about other people.

Wearing a mask shows you believe the words in the United States Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The only people who are being denied freedom are the people who are being forced to go to work before companies have time to put proper protections in place, and they can get adequate supplies of PPE.

You can get a haircut. Learn to do it yourself/have a family member do it.
You can exercise. On the sidewalk. On your patio. In your yard.
You can have a beer. In the comfort of your own home.

How many people have been sent to fight wars in foreign countries?

Can you imagine how they feel when they hear people complain about having to stay home, especially when they are among the most vulnerable?

Right now, people are losing their lives. Some people are losing their legs. Some their health. Who knows? Maybe forever.

Masks must be mandatory because we don’t know exactly how Covid-19 is transmitted. Masks must be mandatory until we have a vaccine.

We must exercise patience, for as long as it takes.

Businesses can not safely reopen until our government implements mandatory mask requirements.

Please help save lives. Repeat, as long as it takes, to everyone you know including your local government officials.
