Wearing a mask sets a good example to all | READER COMMENTARY

This letter is in response to Dave Reich’s letter to the editor, “At this point, mask wearers are merely sheep” (May 25).

Yes, I am one of those people still wearing masks in stores. There are three reasons.

First, more than half of Maryland residents are not vaccinated, so I am trying to help set an example especially for my grandchildren who cannot get vaccinated yet. Second, I usually catch a lot of colds and I have gone the whole year without one because I have worn a mask. This is proof that they actually prevent illness.

The third reason is that it is my right to wear a mask. Many people claimed the right not to wear a mask even though they spewed the COVID-19 virus everywhere. Mask wearing is not hurting anyone. Just look at it as another fashion accessory and get over it!
