 COVID-19 is an ever-growing problem in our world today that can be reduced by wearing masks in public settings. The three essential reasons masks should be mandated in Saskatchewan are that they prevent community spread COVID-19, they allow the people of Saskatchewan to feel safe in public , and help prevent asymptomatic carriers from spreading the illness. So this petitions goal is to urge the Saskatchewan government to mandate masks in Saskatchewan.

According to the CDC, masks are recommended in public settings with people who you are unfamiliar with. This is because masks are considered a barrier to stop the virus from travelling through the air and entering our bodily system. Without the use of masks this can occur when people talk, cough, and sneeze due to the saliva droplets exhaled out. These microscopic droplets can spread up to two feet or even farther. But, if everyone wore masks in public settings we would be able to eliminate COVID-19 from our province. 

Another essential reason that our province needs to mandate masks is the comfort it will provide the population of Saskatchewan. Many people are considered high risk with COVID-19, and if infected will not do well. But if everyone is wearing masks, the disease will not spread as quickly as it once has and infect these people. 

Also according to Mayo Clinic, many people who contract COVID-19 do not produce symptoms. This could mean that they could pass it onto many people in the community that are higher risk for COVID-19. All it takes is one person to infect the population.

Wearing a mask is not spreading fear, it is taking preventable measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. So I urge you to sign this petition to protect the people of Saskatchewan.
