I want to know who is policing the HYGIENE and CLEANLINESS of said masks? Hmm seems to me it’s a lost cause. And our numbers go up after every weekend. Hmmm. Doesn’t take a genius.

We have police officers asking the DA to enforce punishable non mask compliance reported local news, DA Dow just like our Feds, cares more about politics and money vs valuing human life. Da Dow refuses to enforce a mask adherence. I’m stuck here in Paso sadly, and I see people of all spectrums not wearing masks. Do you think those folks wash their hands or use sanitizer whom wont wear masks; no, they don’t I’d think. A vaccine is long away, watch the caseb count and death toll rise to otherwise regular people who COULD combat the regular flu. Nice job John Hammon in Paso for a mask boycott for political gain.

Easy solution, just stay home and let everyone else go about their business.

Then you need to stay home. It’s your responsibility to stay safe.
