I wear a mask because I don't know if I'm a carrier – I may be asymptomatic or presymptomatic. If I am, I don't want to risk spreading the virus to any of our essential employees or vulnerable populations.
Thank you to Senator Dave Hansen for his leadership on this.
From the article: “I encourage everyone to do the right thing and put a mask on when out in public. Together we can stem the virus and move our state forward.”
The science is irrefutable: wearing a mask helps contain COVID-19. Wearing a mask is about more than protecting your own health—by wearing a mask, you’re helping protect our front-line healthcare workers, small business owners, essential workers, first responders, and our most vulnerable citizens.
