Experts have established that wearing a mask, practicing good hygiene by washing your hands and properly social distancing, all greatly reduces the risk of contracting coronavirus. Although, we can’t be held accountable for those who will not abide by these best practices, it should be noted that if our economy and overall best quality of life is to get back on track, people need to do these things. Not just for ourselves, but for our neighbors as well.
