If you love your family, please wear your mask.

I know we are all tired of covid. Masking, handwashing, not eating out, delaying vacation and family gatherings.  However, this Delta variant is super contagious. Vaccinated or not you need to wear a mask. You can still get covid even if vaccinated.  It may be a mild case or worse an asymptomatic case.

It will most likely not kill you if you are vaccinated but it may kill the person you pass it on to. Especially those not vaccinated for whatever reason, like your grandchildren under 12.   

“More than 400 children have died of COVID-19. And right now we have almost 2,000 kids in the hospital.”

Dr. Francis Collins, the head of the National Institutes of Health

Dr. Collins warned we could be back at 200,000 cases per day soon. I am amazed while walking my dogs and passing a local popular restaurant not one person was wearing a mask. No wait staff, no cooks, busing staff, no one. I saw a young man come out onto the patio with a full tray of food and his face was less than an inch from the food.  No mask. Not one person at a local indoor garden center had a mask on. Even the worst of the masks have 26% protection. Anything is better than nothing.

Please wear your masks as you could be an asymptomatic carrier. If you have traveled, gone into a restaurant to eat, been at a concert or family gathering. You could get it or be an asymptomatic carrier. If we would all wear our masks, we could get this under control. Please do your part.

Be safe.

Yours in good health,
