Please wear a mask

I’ve noticed that where I shop will significantly change the number of people wearing face masks. In most grocery stores I go in it seems to be more than 50% of the people wearing a mask and every employee. I went to Walmart a few days ago and it was probably a little less than 50% wearing masks, but still a decent amount and again every employee was wearing one. I went to Home Depot Monday and I saw one other person other than myself wearing a mask...including employees. Not a single employee was wearing a mask. I doubt I’ll be going back to that store for the foreseeable future.

Where I am going with this though is that I do not understand why people refuse to wear a mask when in an enclosed public place. The masks do very little to prevent you from catching anything, they are instead intended to help prevent the wearer from spreading anything. I don’t think I am sick, yet I wear a mask, because I could potentially be an unknowing asymptotic carrier. Wearing a mask tells me you care about your fellow man.

So, if you don’t already, please wear a mask when you venture out in public.
