Masks and social distancing are necessities due to toll of COVID-19

Letters to the Editor


To the editor:

With daily new coronavirus cases at a new high nationally, it is time for all of us to delay some gratification and make some sacrifices. Otherwise, hospitals and their exhausted staff will soon be filled beyond capacity.

The death toll is already staggering.  Limiting those who you come within 6 feet of without a mask except for those you live with just has to be the way it is until the virus in the community is significantly diminished.
