Mask Up ……

Mask UP!

I traveled to the west coast during the Thanksgiving holiday. My travels took me to Las Vegas, Los Angles (LA) and Seattle, to care for sick relatives and friends. I have been back home in Texas for a week, and noticed that Texan’s act like the pandemic is over. The majority are not wearing a mask.

I went to an event today and it was outside, and I could count the individuals that were wearing a mask. Every city I visited, the majority of the population wore mask, even in Las Vegas. In LA you were asked to produce your vaccination card if you were dining inside a restaurant. I had no problem with the process and I complied.

I can think of plenty of reasons why you should continue to wear your mask. A. The pandemic is not over.

B. There is a new variant.

C. Although you may be vaccinated it is a possibility that you still may be exposed to COVID-19, or a variant, and become ill. Nothing is 100%.

D. You do not know who is vaccinated and who is not.

E. Wearing a mask will be a great deterrent from the flu and or a cold that typically occurs during the winter months.

So do yourself a favor, mask up to stay well and be a part of the solution, and not the problem.
