    Hospitalizations have doubled. Our county leaders should join public health in their efforts by publicly encouraging residents to wear a mask when in public. Yet they remain silent. Wearing a mask is a small inconvenience but helps residents stay well. If you want to keep businesses open and allow more businesses to open wear a mask. It’s a simple step to help everyone.
