😷ME, My MASK & I !!😷

Posted on: March 14, 2022

A Message from Our Prez! 🤗

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all doing well and keeping safe.

As we all know the mask mandate is no longer in effect as of Monday March 21/2022. The wearing of masks is for everyone’s protection. Something you need to remember is that we are still the vulnerable age group and you can have Covid and not have any symptoms but still pass it on. While most people will only get a cold, anyone with an underlying health problem could get sicker.

It is up to what your comfort level is as to whether you wear a mask or not. Susan and I will continue to wear our masks for some time to come and we are asking everyone to be courteous to everyone else whether they are wearing a mask or not.
