Wearing face mask in public should be mandatory

THE EDITOR, MADAM:

Can someone educate our people on the proper way of wearing a face mask? I am a commuter who uses public transportation – JUTC buses and taxis – and I notice some passengers not wearing face masks, while others wear their face mask like chin straps, and others cover only their mouth and not their nose.

I think it should be mandatory for all of us to wear a face mask on public transportation and in public places. This helps to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

It is for our good to wear a face mask, so we should not need the police to ensure that we do so.

The authorities are doing their best to control this pandemic, but we need to play our part.
