MASKS: Intrusion unwelcome

| July 28, 2020 1:00 AM

OK, enough of this mask mandate crap. Ms. Anderson (Tuesday Press article), I’ve got a couple of questions for you. 1. Is the ICU 100% Chinese virus patients? 2. Is your demand for masks a guaranteed cure to stop the Chinese virus? The biggest of all: 3. Were you and the hospital not given two months of lockdown so you and the hospital would be prepared for exactly what is going on now (the virus progression)?

I’m sure 100% of the hospital’s beds are filled, so where is the wing that should have been prepared for patients not needing ICU. TWO MONTHS. Remember!? Stop whining. This virus is probably going to infect everyone, myself included. I’m sorry folks, a vaccine for a virus is exceptionally rare. Face it, the Chinese virus is not a typical one leading many to believe it was man-made. Although you cannot say that, God forbid you upset the communist Chinese government.

It is not going to be over until it is over. (Thank you Yogi Berra.) Ms. Anderson, live your life and stay the hell out of mine.
