Wear a face mask, and wear it right
I am appalled by lack of appropriate wearing of face masks. I see so many people wearing their masks under their noses. What is the point? Do they think they do not breathe through their noses? I also see many people going into a store (sorry, Walmart, but that is where I’m seeing this the most) putting their masks on their chins, or removing them completely, once they are in the store. Perhaps supermarkets, pharmacies and big box stores could use their PA system to remind customers to keep their masks on at all times and ensure it covers both mouth and nose. Sad that so many people do not understand this.
