20 States lift mask mandate


Jaylean Thompson




As mask requirements are progressively being lifted in U.S. states, so is the chance of being exposed to Covid-19.

Masks cover the nose and mouth and are intended to help prevent people who have the virus from transmitting it to others, even if they do not have symptoms.

Although it is rare for healthy teens and young adults to be deeply affected, they could harm any young children, senior citizens, or anyone else of high risk that they come near (including loved ones) if they are exposed to the virus.

If everyone wears a mask in congregate settings, the risk of exposure to Covid-19 can be reduced.

Although wearing a mask is annoying at times, it is a better solution than possibly hurting your loved ones.
