Good news! The latest CDC study shows that we can defeat the COVID-19 in 4 to 6 weeks if we all wear masks. They released two studies that show the cloth masks work. 

The news just keeps getting better. Now retailers have joined the chorus of “wear your mask” or you don’t get in our store. Thank you, Kroger, Publix, Walmart, Target, Costco, Apple, Dollar Tree, American Eagle, CVS, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Tuesday Morning, Verizon and others for making us do what we should have been doing all along. Wear your mask.


Here is the hard news. All the people I have tested who were positive, did not wear masks. What does that tell you?  Wear your mask.

Now we need all our local groups to wear masks. Chamber events, political rallies, Lions Club, Rotary, Civitans, Optimists, VVA and all the others. If you do not wear a mask, you have become part of the problem. 

Yes, I know this may not be liked by all, but the time has come to take this very seriously. Wear your mask. Thanks for reading.
