  1. Thanks for posting the link “(ABC News) Our governor just required them in all public places in Colorado, thank goodness!” I truly believe wearing a mask is not only caring, but I also think authorities are not doing enough to educate as to ‘why the use of a mask proves to be effective’?
    Thanks once again for the information.
