Missouri needs a mask mandate. Masks help stop the spread of COVID. ICUs are full but I still see ppl without masks, others with their nose sticking out or worn as a chin covering. Some don't social distance either.
No one should have to risk getting COVID to get groceries or other essentials.
Healthcare workers are already stressed. We need to reduce the stress on them but far too many ppl refuse to wear masks in order to bring R(0) below 1.
If personal responsibility worked really well, we wouldn't need laws. But we have them bc it often doesn't. We should require masks too. We need to protect the public and our healthcare system.
