LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Wear a mask so we can get back to school

I am a student and I wanted to write to you about the current boundaries COVID-19 imposes on my education.

I have found that online learning is more difficult especially when working with a teacher unaccustomed to this style of learning.

While I understand the reasons why learning needs to be online, I do not understand why people do not work harder to help to stop the spread of the virus. If masks could truly be worn, if quarantines could be more effectively implemented, I believe that I would already be back in school.

I also believe it is the news’ job to promote anti-COVID behavior.
