Editor,

Judy Gunn presents incorrect information that facemasks will weaken her immune system. This is a myth that should not be propagated.

If someone has contracted COVID-19, they are most contagious before showing symptoms. In other words, when they don’t know they have it. By wearing a mask, especially when indoors around others, they are protecting others and assuring they don’t spread the disease. It is irresponsible to not wear one in a supermarket or when taking out food.

If you want to avoid the illness... wash your hands regularly, stay away from strangers who are not wearing a mask, and maintain social distancing as much as possible.
