Lea Ellen Loving: Wearing mask is just common sense

Really? Nevada County’s reopening rally photos show a large crowd with no masks and no attempt at social distancing.

Doug LaMalfa apparently sanctions this irresponsible behavior. If you want to convince me to shop at your store why aren’t you demonstrating your concern for your customers’ well being? You just drove home the point of why I don’t want to.

Gradual reopening with public health measures is common sense. An us-against-them attitude is childish and could be lethal.

Recently patrons at a local brew pub were not separated from each other. The place was packed. I’d like to see some compliance and enforcement taking place. Why are you so intent on blowing it for the rest of us? Personal responsibility is not a joke, we are in a life or death struggle. I don’t want you to die a horrible death, I certainly don’t want you to cause mine.

Demonstrate your patriotism by regarding your fellow citizens safety as important as our civil liberties.
