A note about masks

I know this is perhaps the last thing in the world you want to read about. We’ve all heard enough about the pandemic and come here for a bit of relief. I get it, but I also am concerned about the health and safety of our HiFi Family. So, please, indulge me. Tomorrow we’re back on track.

With the recent numbers of daily infected Americans rising to new record highs—over 50,000 new cases, 10,000 alone in Florida—we need to help out by wearing our face masks and practicing social distancing.

Masks do not protect the wearer. Masks protect the others from you. If when we’re in public places we each wear one and maintain our distance we beat the pandemic.

Many say, “You cannot make me wear a mask.” That is true, but why wouldn’t you want to? You wear a mask to protect those around you, to beat the pandemic, to keep the economy open. Just like not smoking in restaurants or speed limits — they exist as public health interventions that make sense.

Let’s each do our part to help beat this pandemic so we might get back to a semblance of normalcy like many other countries are starting to enjoy.

Wear your mask (or keep your distance) out of respect for the others and set an example.

Let’s all get through this safely and on to a better day!
