Reinforce importance of masks, sanitizing

As everyone is aware, there has been a surge in COVID-19 cases in this area.

Everywhere we go we are reminded to wear masks. However, I see or hear very few reminders to wash hands and use sanitizers.

Most places have sanitizer available, but I notice very few people using it. Some stores have even stopped wiping down the shopping carts and leave it to customers who walk by without doing so.

Perhaps if we start campaigning to wash hands frequently and sanitize, we can help slow down this surge.
