As recently as a few weeks ago, people in the USA were still failing to wear masks, even though the science shows that it mitigates the spread of COVID-19, and that if everyone wears a mask when they cannot social distance, we’ll get through this a lot faster.

Here’s the scoop – it’s not about you! You wearing a mask protects others, not yourself.
Think about these folks:
- Batman, sacrificing his playboy lifestyle for the good of his city,
- Tony Stark, putting on the Infinity Gauntlet knowing that he wasn’t walking away,
- Shoto facing down Nolan Sorrento outside of castle Anorak,
Dumbledore’s Army, and
- the entire Fellowship of the Ring.
It’s not that big a sacrifice. Be a hero! Wear your mask!
