We seem to be hearing and seeing the COVID mask deniers in the media too often. This is what I explained to a local media anchor. What they are not showing us is the stress these dopes are causing everyone in the retail industry as well as to those who think it’s the best we can do for now to stop potential spread.
People who know me know I usually speak my mind; however, up until recently I have kept my comments to myself. Not any more. The anti-maskers, I have said forever, are showing their lack of intelligence by advertising their ignorance in public places … places they have no business being without a mask. I also say they are just waiting for someone to say anything to them so they can then speak out about their ignorance and cause a disturbance.
There will be more of these disturbances because I, as many, have had enough of listening to the dysfunction of our community, especially after seeing the idiots that barged into city hall. Lock them up, they are spreading false information while infecting each other and others.
I can’t imagine how awful it is to put on a mask so someone can enter a gas bar for smokes and lottery tickets. The staff of these places are not paid to reinforce a bylaw. They have witnessed much aggression from these fools. They need protection from the virus and the ignorance.
The handling, or should I say mishandling, of this pandemic resembles somewhat of a rudderless ship.
