LETTER: Wear a mask

From Port Townsend

The COVID-19 virus is airborne.

It’s “five times more deadly than the most strenuous flus” said President Donald Trump on tape, according to CNN on Sept. 9.

The virus needs a host, you or someone else, to survive.

The only thing that stands between the virus and you is a mask or 6 feet.

People in Jefferson (3.3 cases per 100,000, PDN Sept. 17) and Clallam (18 cases per 100,000) counties are driving cases down.

Let’s keep taking care of each other.

Let’s not give the virus a free ride.

Let’s wear a mask.
