The last thing Culpeper needs is to become another Covid-19 hotspot.
I notice with dismay that many people still enter our local stores without wearing a mask even though the science says this is necessary for the protection of all.
I would urge city leaders and city businesses to enforce this common-sense requirement. Residents who don’t wear a mask should be cited and fined.
Businesses should consider it their obligation to protect their customers who are good citizens, not cater to those customers who are bad citizens.
It isn’t, as some claim, an infringement on rights. If you drive a car without wearing a seat belt, you can be fined. If you drive while intoxicated, you can be jailed. There are times when the rights of many supersede the rights of a selfish few.
