Be prepared to mask up.
We are slightly less than two and a half months away from Inaguration Day. Once the country is under new management, expect that a national mask mandate will be put in place. It is to be hoped that it will be more enthusiastically enforced than some of the state and local mandates. The only way we as a country can get past COVID is to have a comprehensive plan to minimize transmission. And that plan must be actively enforced. It is time we come together as a country so that we can all move forward. When the time comes, we must all be on board. This means not succumbing to abuse from irate, maskless customers. It means speaking up when a client shows up with their mask riding beneath their nose. Doing these things means priotitizing long term goals over short-term, and remembering that the only way to ever get back to normal is to accept that at this time, things are not normal and act accordingly. This is a massive team endeavor. Don’t be the one that drops the ball.
