Governor Andrew Cuomo has just signed an executive order that businesses, merchants and establishments can ban people not wearing a mask from entering. I would like to applaud the governor for this action.
A mask can prevent the spread of the disease, and also sends a message of respect. I'm 70 years old and many people my age and have become sick and died.
We need to follow good sense, wearing masks and social distancing. By doing so we are protecting our neighbors and our family as well. So, do the right thing and wear the mask.
