Whether we like it or not, wearing a mask at some point is our new reality.
Yesterday, town council voted to make wearing masks mandatory in indoor public places if we reach 10 positive COVID-19 cases in Cochrane.
Right now we are at six active cases and we're hoping to not get any higher.
The fact of the matter is, there are more and more places that require us to put on a mask before we enter the door.
Places like dental, doctor and optometrist offices. Also, hair and nail salons, physiotherapy clinics and some stores.
I feel for medical professionals, retails workers or anyone who is required to wear a mask for long work days. I don't doubt that it's uncomfortable, hot and just plain annoying after hours of wearing one.
I don't think anyone enjoys wearing a mask but it is being recommended by top health care professionals and if it can save a life then I say it is worth it masking up when we can't social distance!
There are so many fun designs and mask options out there. I want to see your mask.
