Lack of leadership

I am deeply saddened by the lack of leadership being displayed by local officials. Regardless as to one’s political views, it seems obvious that wearing face mask in public places would help mitigate the spread of the much more contagious omicron COVID-19 virus. Our local leaders readily jumped on the bandwagon to outlaw smoking in public places, but seem totally oblivious to addressing a much more serious health risk when it comes to COVID-19. True leadership requires making tough decisions for the common good regardless as to personal political views. An ordinance requiring wearing a face mask in public places Paducah City/McCracken County is needed.
