Sunday I took a drive around city center, the riverfront area and the farmers market. I saw few people wearing masks. It seems to me that people in Vancouver are not taking COVID-19 seriously. There needs to be a mandate to require masks in public, because people in Clark County are proving they cannot be trusted to do the right thing. I would like to see The Columbian report on mask use (and the lack of). We are not going to beat this virus unless the majority of people wear a mask. I will be sending this same message to Gov. Inslee.
