Mask scofflaws are encouraging spread of virus

Covid is spreading faster than the lies and misinformation coming out of what used to be the White House. As we see the worst rate of spread, we also see businesses and individuals ignoring the science/facts about masks and social distancing.

The CDC said if everyone masked up, we would have this disaster under wraps in six to eight weeks. Ignorance has this disease exploding for eight months now. Enforce the laws! Begin by locking up that selfish barber in Snohomish; then the owner of the Port Angeeles fitness running his speakeasy gym. Then the individuals who continue to get service at Winco and Bargain Market in Arlington. Unless and until we all sacrifice our ego and ignorance this dark period will just advance. More of us need to speak up and call these idiots out.
