Because some of you need some tough love when it comes to wearing a face covering in public.

None of us enjoy wearing a mask when we walk in the gas station, go for a run or every time we enter the grocery store for that matter but it is important and it only works if we all take it seriously.

I'll be the first to admit that I fought wearing the mask at first. As we learned more about the virus and how we could have COVID-19 without any showing any symptoms it became more clear that protecting others from ourselves was important.

Wearing a bandanna or a mask over your face for 10 or even 30 minutes is small inconvenience when it could literally save someone's life.

Please wear your mask and wear it properly when you can't properly distance yourself.
