Covid-19 precaution­s


Thank you, Raina Macintyre, for “Living with Covid”, April 2-8. I am in my 80s and would prefer everyone to be masked in public spaces. The number of cases and hospitalis­ations in Queensland now is higher than a week before the mask mandate was lifted. In Melbourne a few weeks ago I noticed that more people there were wearing masks, even outdoors, than here in Toowoomba. I am sometimes the only person wearing a mask, for instance, at an indoor meeting. This makes me feel uncomforta­ble. People don’t seem to know that a person can be asymptomat­ic and infectious. We were never getting sufficient informatio­n or advice from government officials. Now we are getting almost none.
