RE: Out of hand, June 25.
I am writing in response to the letter regarding the wearing of masks in Wellington County. I agree that we should have started wearing masks in public three months ago.
However, I am extremely pleased that our officials have taken the stance to make wearing of masks mandatory in our county. I feel safer going out in public knowing that someone who may have COVID-19, not necessarily from our area, will greatly reduce the risk of spreading it to me, if they happen to cough or sneeze while wearing a mask.
My husband and I applaud our public health officials for having made this decision.
