    For everyone who feels masks are a nuisance, they are, but the alternative can be deadly. So far, I have seen a few men without masks in Otsego County, and fellows, if you think a mask is a pain, try being a woman having a hot flash while wearing one. Similar to being in a sauna with the heat turned way up. Count your lucky stars you won’t have that problem, and WEAR THAT MASK!

    It is simple. If you won’t sacrifice for the weakest among us, then you don’t deserve to receive care from the doctors and nurses who put their lives at risk everyday. If you want to herd up, then stay at home when you get sick. Don’t show up to a hospital and expect others to sacrifice for you.
