  1. Missouri and St. Charles County have been fortunate regarding the number of Covid-19 cases. We should fight to keep it that way by requiring people to wear masks amd social distance in public including sites such as groceries, dental offices and gas stations. The issue is no longer political; vanity should not be tolerated nor the idea of personal independence. We’ve been invaded by an alien force and, as did the Greatest Generation in WW II, we must sacrifice for the good of all to fight for victory. WW II took 4 years to resolve; everyone pitched in, much sacrifice was required, and life underwent change. This virus is the challange of this time; surely we can rise to meet that challenge by helping one another by wearing masks and social distancing.
