LETTER: Common sense not common

SIR, – With 2020 behind us, and 2021 underway, I am disheartened by the number of people NOT wearing masks in public. 

Common sense is not common, and too many people are irresponsible. 

Covid and other diseases don’t use calendars. 

Since Christmas I have had to ask and stand my ground with people about social distancing in shops. Hand sanitiser is disappearing from public venues.

Outbreaks in NSW and cases in Victoria are further proof that people need education about disease control. 

Think of masks and gloves as non-sexual condoms, keeping you and your family out of hospital. Children should be kept at home, and wear masks in public. 

I know people who have travelled for Christmas and returned home with headaches, fevers, snotty noses, sore throats, you know all those symptoms we were told to report, and these people are NOT being tested. 

If you travelled, please, get tested.
