Letter: Cover your mouths


Re: The Aug. 19 letter from Kristin Saunders (‘This is why I do not wear a mask in public places’):I’m so sick of listening to people who refuse to cover their mouths to help stop the novel coronavirus from spreading.

The woman in the accompanying photo is why I cover my mouth.

I will do anything to help stop the spread of COVID-19 so my mother can come home.

The very frailest of our society are currently locked away from their loved ones.

My mom doesn’t deserve this. She deserves to be around her family, enjoying the last months of her life surrounded by loved ones. Instead, I get to visit her once a month for 30 minutes.

Some can worry about masks causing bad breath while my family weeps because our mother can’t come home.
