The Importance of Wearing a Mask During a Pandemic: There are Benefits!  

A group of people place their hands together, all palms facing outward, as another hand with a paintbrush paints a red heart shape over their hovering hands.

I know for a fact that it is a good idea to wear a mask during a pandemic. Masking not only benefits yourself, but it benefits others as well. Wearing a mask while being vaccinated is a double defense and inspires others to follow your example. It is also an opportunity for us to tell one another that “I care about you, and I want to keep you safe.” This also refers to the Marianist values: “Educate for Adaption and Change as ‘New Times calls for new methods’ -Father Chaminade.” Together, we can all make it through the pandemic with this heroic act.
