I strongly oppose making the wearing of masks a permanent mandate! Masks do little to protect against the spread of viruses and have greatly increased the crime rates. I fear for my children every time we have to go to a store wearing masks, their identity is covered and human trafficking is rampant in our country. Also larceny, shoplifting, and crime in general has increased since mandating the wearing of masks. In fact, wearing a mask in public was illegal until recently for good reason and needs to be made that way again!
