Save lives and mandate wearing masks

I was appalled to enter a local grocery store where mostly the  African American community shops and hardly any of the customers had on masks, some workers did not have on masks and some did.  There were some adults in the store with masks but their kids didn’t have on masks.   The meat packers weren’t wearing masks.  There weren’t any clear markers for distancing in the store.  When I called back and spoke with the MANAGER of the store he stated he went everywhere while he was off on the weekend and he didn’t wear a mask, he said masks don’t really work anyway and since the governor hadn’t made it a law he didn’t have to enforce it at the grocery store he managed.  

Some people don’t understand the benefits of wearing a face covering in public places. It does and will save lives.  Choose life, keep us all safe.  Mandate wearing masks.
