To The Editor:
I know there are strong feelings about mask wearing, but some of us are at special risk. I am a cancer survivor on cancer prevention drugs. I hired a local chimney sweep to clean my chimney. They arrived 20 minutes late. I get it, that happens. I politely asked them to wear a mask when they were in the house adding that I had masks if they did not. The man in charge got very huffy and said he would not wear a mask and left.
He felt that since he got a vaccination he did not need a mask. The truth is one can still get and pass onto others the Covid virus even if you are vaccinated. Vaccination is best for preventing serious disease if you get the virus.
So, please, if you have business that requires you to go into someone's home and they ask you to wear a mask for their protection, please be willing to do so. When I’m at work, I wear a mask from the time I enter the building until I exit. Be considerate of others' needs.
