Letter: Please wear a mask

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

This letter is an appeal to the citizens of Gloucester County, in this time of the Coronavirus, on behalf of individuals over 60 with underlying conditions such as myself.

It was reported in last week’s paper that there are now 47 cases of the virus reported in Gloucester County. This is an increase in cases of nearly 60 percent (17) since the Phase I and Phase II preventive conditions have been lifted!

My appeal is that when you are out shopping you would please wear a mask and practice social distancing so that vulnerable individuals like me, and others, are safer. Clearly, the measures we were all taking, in the past, to prevent the spread of the virus worked but now with the relaxation of the preventive guidelines, the virus is spreading.
