Mr. Ehlmann has encouraged people to wear masks and social distance. Obviously, his encouragement isn’t working since the COVID cases here in St. Charles keep going up. A mask mandate is very necessary. One person’s right not to wear a mask jeopardizes my right to life. I also have family members who are at high risk, and their lives could be in jeopardy. One person’s right can’t outweigh the good of all. It’s about time Mr. Ehlmann takes a hard stand and mandates masks.
