Letter to the editor: Mask rules should be maintained until virus is gone

Patricia Walker
Breckenridge

Breckenridge ends mandatory mask zone! As liberal as this town is, I would have thought this wouldn’t happen. I am fully vaccinated and hate wearing masks. We all do. However the thought of getting COVID-19 easily outweighs my dislike of masks. This is an airborne disease. Had there been a national mandatory mask policy in March 2020, we might have eliminated this virus in months. We now have variants that are more virulent, and the vaccines aren’t as effective. So I will continue to wear my mask. I will not venture into town on weekends. When we have the inevitable spike in cases, perhaps the Breckenridge Town Council will reinstate the mandatory mask policy and next time continue it until the virus is gone from our country.
