In last week’s Times there was an article disputing the wearing of masks and that in March of 2020, some agencies and others were saying that masks didn’t help – and there is no science about wearing them.

If one looks back at other medical issues, one finds that as time goes on and more is learned about the illness in question, opinions change about what does and does not help. I suggest this person look into what has happened since March and what might be said now about masks by these agencies and anyone with a scientific background.

As Americans we do have choices, but there are also rules and regulations that we follow, often called “laws.” Hopefully this letter might cause everyone to see some reality in what is happening now.
