Just a snapshot of Moore County when the sheriff decides not to enforce the wearing of masks:
Seniors (33 percent of our county) will not leave their homes for fear of those without masks, who don’t care if they spread the virus.
The economy will continue to lag, no customers, no business.
Schools won’t open because you felt it was your right to spread the virus. So now your kids will be at home, and you won’t be able to return to work.
Your local bar and restaurant will have to close again because they have common sense rules that masks must be worn in their place of business.
Your constitutional right? You do not have the right to spread a deadly virus. You do not have the right to infect me or my family.
You don’t have to wear a mask in the car or at home. But you do need to wear it when you are in a store, with a crowd of people and whenever social distancing cannot be practiced.
It’s not politics; it’s just plain selfish and stupid, and you can’t argue with stupid.
