Letter to the Editor: What will it take to order mandatory masking?

Open letter to Plumas County Public Health Director Dana Loomis:

Low county COVID vaccination rates, alarming increase in positive cases, reluctance/refusal of the unvaccinated to get vaccinated, a county-wide fire disaster bringing in large numbers of first responders from out of the county and forcing large numbers of evacuated residents to house in confined quarters with friends, family, and evacuation centers.  What will it take for you to request the Board of Supervisors implement mandatory masking, one of the few available “tools” to address this potential additional disaster?!
