Editor, The Beacon:
Do I have a right to feel safe after being double-vaccinated against a deadly virus?
Do I have a right to have dinner inside my favorite restaurant without fear of being exposed to a deadly virus?
Do I have a right to attend a wedding, baby shower, bar mitzvah, family funeral or reunion without fear of contracting a deadly virus?
Do I have a right to expect that children I love can go to school without being exposed to a deadly virus?
Do I have a right to take a needed vacation without first weighing the risks of exposure to a deadly virus?
My quality of life has been seriously impacted by those who refuse to wear masks to prevent the spread of a deadly virus that has killed more than 600,000 Americans. They say it infringes on their right to not wear a mask.
What about the rights of those of us wearing masks in order to eradicate COVID-19 and its variants?
If you don’t want to wear a mask, then isolate yourself from the rest of us so you don’t violate our right to live without fear of contamination, illness and death.
To do otherwise is simply not fair.
