    Finally people who have sense and compassion commenting! I’m glad your surgery went well and that all of you are staying safe. It bewilders me people who talk against masks. Such a small price to pay to keep others and yourself from contracting this virus. People who refuse to wear a mask and those that despite it all don’t believe the virus even exists are all over this area. It makes you wonder how those people managed to get this far in their lives being so ignorant! It also has really opened my eyes to the fact that a significant portion of our population can be so easily manipulated to resist something so much in their interest and especially the interest of others. I realize now why people get rich selling whatever to others. There’s a lot of people who are both uneducated and easily controlled with just rhetoric. And you can bet if there’s a trump sign in their front yard you’re seeing the home of one of those weak minds!

    Thank you William for keeping us up-dated on Covid-19!!! So sad there are more deaths!
    And thank you to Joy Bryant for your comment. This virus is REAL. I am an “at risk” individual and also do not understand why people cannot conceive the seriousness of this virus. I live in Florida, and I hope ALL of the people who negatively commented under the article about Gov. Kay Ivey extending the Mask Mandate in AL. (Alabama Governor Extends Mask Mandate Until After November Election-in this publication) READ JOY BRYANT’S COMMENT!

    Having had major surgery just a few weeks ago being home for a short amount of time, and then seeing firsthand and listening to the calls over the P.A. in the hospital having seen the rooms with the doors marked and you have no doubt Covid was in there!! if you don’t believe it then you’re on a different planet! Wear your mask save other lives if you don’t care about your own! This is not political- this is a fact ! I prayed and I’m thankful to God that I was out of the hospital without having contracted the disease. When I see a person without a mask I figured they just don’t care
    About their families or their neighbors or anyone else’s life! And I want to look at them and say shame shame on you
