Mask Up

Too many people only pretend to wear a mask. The virus is among us, so pitch in and do what only you can do to help. Wearing your mask down around your chin, using a mask that won’t stay up, or draping a hairnet over your beard is not helping us beat this thing. May as well put it in your pocket as on your face.

If you’ve been hoarding that stack of N-95s for your next sanding project, it’s time to get the lead out and use them. N-95s stay up so you won’t have to touch your face every 15 seconds, and they keep the virus out. 

Yes, a mask will not make you look pretty — get over it. Yes, an N-95 is hot. Hot is better than dead, right? Someday the U.S. will finally figure out how to manufacture this simple and effective piece of technology (sigh) and everybody will get them.
