Please Wear a Mask in Downtown Campbell

Posted on June 9th, 2020 by sheldon

Hi everyone. As we start taking baby steps back toward the life that we're used to, there's something we'd like you to do for us.

Please wear a mask.

Please wear a mask even if you're outdoors. Please wear one even if you're keeping your social distance. Please wear one even when you don't need to be wearing one.

When you're in Downtown Campbell, we need you to go above and beyond the normal guidelines for mask wearing and make a show of it. Doing so will encourage everyone to mask up when they come down here. As restrictions are loosened, some people are behaving like the pandemic is either over or on an indefinite holiday and that is terrifying to those of us who do not have the option of working from home.

It has already been a devastating year for all of our shops and getting sick would just multiply the misery. Most of our shops have cut their staffing down to the bare minimum. When there's no backup, even a mild course of illness could mean a complete and absolute shut down for two weeks.

Of course, for some of our shop keepers, the financial implications of getting sick is the least of their worries. We have our share of high risk people who shouldn't even be leaving their homes much less be opening a shop to the public.

Please wear a mask.

Please do it to protect us. Please do it to protect our progress toward recovery. Please do it to protect each other.
