Wear masks, save lives

Masks should be required in public spaces. While vulnerable populations should stay home as much as possible, sometimes going out in public (to get medicine, groceries, etc.) is unavoidable. Wearing a mask is a small inconvenience but has been proven to reduce the transmission of the virus. You may be an infected carrier while asymptomatic or presymptomatic; it is worth the minor annoyance to potentially save the lives of our friends and neighbors.
