Please Wear Your Face Masks!

Please Wear Your Face Masks!

Did you miss it?
Today Governor Newsom ordered everyone in California to wear face masks in public — again.
I know, I know, it’s getting tiresome. But as the governor pointed out, Covid-19 is not waning — just the opposite. Cases are increasing, especially in the southern part of the state.

We may be getting tired of the restrictions, but unfortunately, Covid-19 is not getting tired of us. There have now been more than 165,000 cases in California, and more than 5,300 deaths, and although the numbers aren’t going up as quickly as a couple of months ago, they are still increasing.

People may be talking about anticipating the second wave, but we’re still not out of the first wave, and if we’re not careful, it could last a lot longer.

Governor Newsom has made sensible exceptions to the mask requirement, including, I’m happy to note, for deaf people and those who need to communicate with them. You can read an article that lays out the rules here.

Most importantly, though, please stay safe!
