Face Masks - Mandatory

Thank you Governor Northam and your administration for making every effort to safeguard Virginia.

Face masks should be required in businesses, schools and at public events. They should be voluntary during at home stays . The pandemic is taking lives and we must keep that in the forefront of our minds.  It's a small thing compared to the bigger thing....the pandemic is a high risk for death.This is not a political matter; its a health crisis. Wearing masks has shown to bring numbers down. Numbers going down means an end is near. I stand strong on wearing a mask so we breathe freely in our future. Not wearing a mask will keep the virus around. Masks should be worn in schools as well businesses.  Schools serve the public and people carry the virus without having symptoms. The safety of children is a priority. The quicker we comply; the quicker we can move about with no pandemic.
