I am tired of the political mask debate! It is about LIFE or DEATH. Hospitals in KC are filling up & going on diversion which means if you or a loved one get sick w/COVID, has a heart attack or is seriously injured in a car accident, there may not be a hospital bed for you.(1/3)

(2/3)I support @QuintonLucasKC #MaskMandate. This is an evolving virus. According new info from the @CDCgov even if you are vaccinated, you can still get the Delta variant, be asymptomatic, have a LARGE viral load in your system & spread the virus. The entire state is in the red.
(3/3)If you care about your neighbor, those with underlying health conditions & children 11 yrs old & younger, PLEASE, please, please #GetVaccinated. And let’s all #MaskUp until we reach heard immunity. #HealthCare shouldn’t be political. #MOLeg #MaskUp
If you haven’t already done so, get vaccinated.
Wear a damn mask.
