I agree with letter writer Judah Isaacs, that we must take the COVID-19 seriously (“Not Taking This Seriously,” May 7, 2020). But we need not overly terrify and panic people. The CDC does NOT “strongly recommend that everyone wear a mask outdoors.” When one is going outside for a walk and is social distancing, one need not wear a mask. These are the words of the CDC: “Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering when around others, including when you have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store.”
