Dear Residents and Summer Visitors,

As the summer of 2020 unfurls in Sullivan County, it’s critically important that we keep it from unraveling at the same time.

Over the past week, I’ve noticed – as have my neighbors and friends – a disturbing pattern of both visitors and residents no longer wearing masks or even social distancing when out in our communities. I live in Fallsburg, a welcome hotspot for summer tourism, but now I fear it and other areas of our County will become hotspots of COVID-19.

Coronavirus may have lessened in our area (thankfully), but it’s not gone – indeed, people can be carrying the potentially lethal virus without even knowing it, and thus spreading it without even knowing it, especially if they’re coming from an area where there has been a high infection rate. That’s why the Governor of New York, along with the governors of New Jersey and Connecticut, have just mandated a 14-day quarantine for anyone coming into these states from certain hotspot states like Florida and Alabama.

Just because we’ve been successful in keeping our COVID counts low doesn’t mean we have nothing to worry about. We need to keep our masks on whenever we’re outside our homes and cannot social distance – like in a grocery store, along a crowded sidewalk, or at our house of worship.

Not wearing a mask during these times sends the message, intentional or not, that we simply don’t care about the health and welfare of our neighbors. Not only is that disrespectful and discourteous, it can create needless friction with those neighbors, be they here year-round or just for the season. We don’t need more challenges during this already challenging time.

I remain hopeful that we can have a summer of fun and good memories, so long as we treat each other with kindness and respect. This year, that includes wearing a mask and social distancing. Please join me in doing so!

We don't care.

We are immune and have herd immunity.

My body my choice.

If they don't want to get sick, they should stay home.

I paid a lot of money for my bungalow and I'm not having my summer ruined by some anti-Semitic politician.

Bottom line-we don't care about you.

I think they mean when you go to town.

What do Gdolim say about the potential of more anti-semitism?

If Gdolim would say to wear masks, would you still say the same, as above?

Oh, I'm bitterly sarcastic.
I think not wearing a mask is completely absurd and inexcusable.

I thought the last like when I said we don't care about you made it quite obvious. How dare we make such a chillul Hashem.

By now there are more gun related deaths in NY than covid deaths. We should wear bullet proof vests instead of masks.
Walmart and many other stores don't allow in without a mask and you can't expect people to SD or wear a mask in their bungalow colonies.
I wouldn't take these letters so to heart, these people are waiting months to publicize this letter and and there will be many more this summer.
You should delete the "no one wearing masks" from the title because I was at Walmart and every single person was wearing a mask. Masks are worn in stores that require masks.

So go ahead and wear a bullet proof vest if you so wish.

What's with all these ridiculous comparisons? We have to stop resisting authority. Just. wear. that. freaking. mask.

Everyone is wearing masks in places that require masks. Stores that require masks don't let you in without one.
As long as Jews are around there will be letters like this publicized.
They were waiting for the mountains to fill up so they can publicize this letter.
Happens to be many doctors are saying not to wear masks in the heat.
To start a thread titled "No one wearing masks" is just a lie.

I have read that many times on this site in regard to refusing masks.

It is a solgan from abortion rights activists.
