To the editor:

I’m not clear on why people who believe masks protect you from the corona virus are so adamant that the city council needs to vote a requirement for mask wearing in Ripon. If you believe masks protect you from covid and you wear a mask then you are protected. Right? If you don’t believe you are protected by wearing a mask if others don’t then what’s the point of the mask in the first place? Either they protect you or they don’t! If our city council require masks in public places they are infringing on the rights of those who choose not to wear a mask for whatever reason. I believe these people were elected to do the will of all the people they represent! Most people are intelligent enough to make their own decision regarding this issue. City council please leave it alone.
