Letter: Just wear a mask


I keep hearing about people being concerned about the health risks of wearing a mask. If they were bad and harmful to wear because of carbon dioxide buildup, do you think health care workers would be able to wear them all day without issue while they’re taking care of you in the hospital because you choose not to protect yourself and others?

Stop looking for excuses. You want all of this to be over? Wear the damn mask.
