I’ve been seeing posts on social media, and in conversation that masks don’t work, and why should they wear it. Short answer is YES they work. Here is some scientific backing:
If someone told you your chance of getting cancer would be cut by 50% by wearing a mask, wouldn’t you wear one? Why is it so difficult for people to not wear it for a little while when not able to social distance? If you don’t want to do it for me, your child, your mom/dad, your grandparents, your cousin, or even yourself, do it for the healthcare workers. The healthcare workers have been working non-stop to take care of Covid patients for months. Some don’t get to see their families for weeks all because there are people who refuse to do the right thing.
The CDC director has said we can get rid of this virus if EVERYONE just wore a mask for 6 weeks. SIX WEEKS. The virus would have nowhere to go if everyone just did your part.
Mask wearing is caring! Just do it.
