Letter to the editor: Masks are key

To the editor:

I am writing to you about COVID-19 and face coverings and why I think they are much needed and also why I think that we as a community should be more willing to wear masks as people are so eager to get back to the real world.

For us to make that happen we need to make sure everyone has a mask. We are a tight community and should be able to provide these masks so that we can prevent the spread of the virus. Ours is a historic place for college basketball and we have two great high schools in town. We all want to be able to attend KU basketball games and the city showdown of Lawrence High and Free State, but if we do not follow the correct protocols, then we will not be able to do these things. Masks will help our community to open sooner so that we can go to bars and sporting events and have fun with our friends. Masks are the answer to our problems and so is social distancing.

JD Woods,
